FTC Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection
in the 21st Century
George Mason University, Arlington, VA
Dr. Chipty will discuss her views about market definition and market power in multi-sided platforms at the third session of the FTC’s hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century. The session will focus on the potential for collusive, exclusionary, and predatory conduct in multi-sided, technology-based platform industries. She will describe circumstances in which a single-market approach to market definition and market power could be appropriate and the potential misuse of the concept of multi-sidedness.
