The Guardian: We need to nationalise Google, Facebook and Amazon. Here’s why. “Network effects generate momentum that not only helps these platforms survive controversy, but makes it incredibly difficult for insurgents to replace them. As a result, we have witnessed the rise of increasingly formidable platform monopolies. Google, Facebook and Amazon are the most important in the west. (China has its own tech ecosystem.) Google controls search, Facebook rules social media, and Amazon leads in e-commerce. And they are now exerting their power over non-platform companies – a tension likely to be exacerbated in the coming decades.” Please note that just because I put something here doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with it. I’m trying to reflect concerns and issues that are being raised.
