[Book Talk] Susan Crawford on Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry & Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age [AUDIO]

2

In the Internet era, a very few companies control our information destiny.

In this talk, and in her new book Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, Susan Crawford—a professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and a former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation policy—demonstrates how deregulatory changes in policy have created a communications crisis in America.

The consequences: Tens of millions of Americans are being left behind, people pay too much for too little Internet access, and speeds are slow.

But everyday people can change this story—and what happens in the year ahead could change the game for good.
