Within less than a few months, Chair Khan and other commissioners have completely altered the FTC’s approach to antitrust enforcement.
Is this the culmination of a decade-long effort by Hipster Antitrust to reshape American competition policy?
In recent months, the FTC has undergone radical shifts in leadership, rule making, and enforcement.

From changes in rule-making to a greater lack of transparency, it’s hard to know what radical changes to competition enforcement could happen next.
Is America’s long standing antitrust policy under attack? Has the FTC become the new battleground for ideological interests? Will enforcement in the name of anti-tech fervor affect other sectors of the economy?
