If there’s so much profit to be made, libertarians say, it won’t be long before more innovative competitors show up, like TikTok, and end the “monopoly.”
Wrong, the other party says (and I tend to agree). These giants can (and will) undercut (think Amazon) or simply gobble up (as Facebook did with Instagram) new players, and regulation *is* needed to create an *actually free* market.
Either way, would be cool if some of these f—kers were to implode all on their own, due to incompetence.
