We doubt that Senators Amy Klobuchar and Josh Hawley agree on much.
One of those very few things is that we have an antitrust issue.
According to journalist Shira Ovide, both of their recent books ultimately seek the same outcomes: “tougher regulation, new laws, more aggressive judges and citizen movements to tame what they see as America’s too-big business elite.”
Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, released Antitrust: Taking on Monopoly Power From the Gilded Age to the Digital Age on April 27; Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, published The Tyranny of Big Tech on May 4.
Ovide read both books, for a total of 825 pages about large corporations in America, and doesn’t exactly encourage most people to follow suit.
So if you’d like to know what the senators are seeking without tackling hundreds of pages, Ovide shares their moments of consensus in the New York Times.
