ILSR Co-Director Stacy Mitchell was interviewed on Canadian national radio program The Sunday Edition. She discussed the importance of taking back the power we’ve put into the hands of Amazon and similar corporations.
Read a quote from the interview below:
I think the way to understand Amazon is that it’s an infrastructure company. Jeff Bezos’s goal is really to own the rail lines — the pipelines through which a growing share of our commerce, our information and our services flow.
And Amazon not only provides the infrastructure that other companies rely on; it also competes directly against them. That’s inherently a conflict of interest.
