A Financial Times 'Best Thing I Read This Year' LONGLISTED FOR THE FT & MCKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD Google. Amazon. Facebook. The modern world is defined by vast digital monopolies turning ever-larger profits. Those of us who consume the content that feeds them are farmed for the purposes of being sold ever more products and advertising. Those that create the content – the artists, writers and musicians – are finding they can no longer survive in this unforgiving economic landscape. But it didn’t have to be this way. In Move Fast and Break Things, Jonathan Taplin offers a succinct and powerful history of how online life began to be shaped around the values of the entrepreneurs like Peter Thiel and Larry Page who founded these all-powerful companies. Their unprecedented growth came at the heavy cost of tolerating piracy of books, music and film, while at the same time promoting opaque business practices and subordinating the privacy of individual users to create the surveillance marketing monoculture in which we now live. It is the story of a massive reallocation of revenue in which $50 billion a year has moved from the creators and owners of content to the monopoly platforms. With this reallocation of money comes a shift in power. Google, Facebook and Amazon now enjoy political power on par with Big Oil and Big Pharma, which in part explains how such a tremendous shift in revenues from creators to platforms could have been achieved and why it has gone unchallenged for so long. And if you think that’s got nothing to do with you, their next move is to come after your jobs. Move Fast and Break Things is a call to arms, to say that is enough is enough and to demand that we do everything in our power to create a different future.

Technik ist das allgemeine Medium menschlichen Handelns. "Technik" muss insofern über die Grundstruktur von Zweck-Mittel-Relationen gedacht werden, die zugleich von der reflexiven Ermöglichung durch das Mittel als auch von der bestimmenden Festschreibung durch Zwecke und höherstufige Werte bedacht werden muss. Dieser in zahlreichen Publikationen entfaltete und fortgeschriebene Gedanke kann als ein Leitmotiv des philosophischen Schaffens von Christoph Hubig begriffen werden. Er hat tiefgreifende Konsequenzen (1.) für die philosophische Methodologie, insofern er eine angemessene Reflexion auf Modalverhältnisse unausweichlich macht. In der Handlungsphilosophie und der allgemeinen und anwendungsbezogenen Ethik ermöglicht er es (2.), die Spannung zwischen praktischem Orientierungsbedarf und den Grenzen philosophischer Orientierungskompetenz als "pragmatisch" oder "provisorisch" hinsichtlich ihrer Fortführbarkeit und Revidierbarkeit zu verstehen. Weiter ist der Gedanke, Technik sei Medium des Handelns, (3.) längst ohnehin diskussionsbestimmend in der immanent technikphilosophischen Debatte. Konsequenterweise führt er darüber hinaus (4.) in die kultur- und kunstphilosophische Reflexion, wo er die Anliegen einer kritischen Theorie ohne deren schulbedingte Theorielast verteidigt. Die Beiträge des Bandes diskutieren, gruppiert in diesen vier Sektionen, Themen und Aufgaben aus der Philosophie Christoph Hubigs. Mit Beiträgen von Jan Müller, Michael Nerurkar, Philipp Richter, Pirmin Stekeler-Weithofer, Andreas Kaminski, Hans Poser, Jörg Zimmer, Alfred Nordmann, Jens Kertscher, Petra Gehring, Gerhard Gamm, Nicole C. Karafyllis, Armin Grunwald, Klaus Wiegerling, Peter Fischer, Andreas Luckner, Ulrike Ramming, Michael Weingarten, Kurt Röttgers.

Across the globe, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft have accumulated power in ways that existing regulatory and intellectual frameworks struggle to comprehend. A consensus is emerging that the power of these new digital monopolies is unprecedented, and that it has important implications for journalism, politics, and society. It is increasingly clear that democratic societies require new legal and conceptual tools if they are to adequately understand, and if necessary check the economic might of these companies. Equally, that we need to better comprehend the ability of such firms to control personal data and to shape the flow of news, information, and public opinion. In this volume, Martin Moore and Damian Tambini draw together the world's leading researchers to examine the digital dominance of technologies platforms and look at the evidence behind the rising tide of criticism of the tech giants. In fifteen chapters, the authors examine the economic, political, and social impacts of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft, in order to understand the different facets of their power and how it is manifested. Digital Dominance is the first interdisciplinary volume on this topic, contributing to a conversation which is critical to maintaining the health of democracies across the world.

Laws prohibiting unilateral anticompetitive conduct have been the subject of vigorous international debate for decades, as policymakers, antitrust scholars and agencies continue to disagree over how best to regulate the market conduct of a single firm with substantial market power. Katharine Kemp describes the controversy over Australia's misuse of market power laws in recent years, which mirrored the international debate in this sphere, and culminated in the fundamental reform of the misuse of market power prohibition under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) in 2017. Misuse of Market Power: Rationale and Reform explains Australia's new misuse of market power law, which adopts an 'effects-based test' for unilateral conduct, and makes a comparative analysis between Australian tests for unilateral anticompetitive conduct and tests from the US and the EU. This text also illuminates the frequently mentioned, but little understood, concept of 'purpose' and its role in framing unilateral conduct standards.
