While leaders at the Federal Trade Commission, an independent agency that polices digital competition issues, have voiced deep concern about the gatekeeping power of US tech giants, it's unclear to what extent the White House believes new laws should expressly target them. If it weighs in more forcefully, it could have big implications both domestically and internationally.
“That kind of two-way conversation to see where objectives align, and where they don't align, can be a really valuable part of the TTC,” said Aaron Cooper, vice president of tech trade group BSA, which counts AWS, IBM and Intel as members.
