Sen. Hawley calls for a criminal antitrust probe into Amazon

Sen. Hawley has demanded a criminal antitrust investigation into Amazon. The WSJ reported several instances in which Amazon employees peered into sales data from independent sellers in order to develop its own competing, private label products. Hawley said that during this pandemic when most small retail businesses would rely on Amazon, such predatory data practices threaten their very existence.

Owner of market platform should not be able to compete with sellers on it or they will always have an unfair edge. Since platform is a natural monopoly should be regulated.

Yes break up these mega corps now they are just as bad as having China supply the medical equipment why if they go under poof 1/3 of all the things people buy are not available. Never put all your eggs in one basket.

Shame on this company being better than its competitors. Guess how you fix the problem? I'll give you a hint, it isn't depending on the government to regulate it. You fix it with your dollars. Just don't shop on amazon! There is nothing on amazon that you can't get somewhere else. Will it be more expensive? Yes, every brick and mortar is, but it's the same argument with any business, no matter the size. The are always competitors. You can fix this the same way me and many others do...I don't use amazon, i don't buy cigars online, and I don't buy Chinese.

They have done this nonsense for some time, so I find the sudden interest a bit humourous. In any case, I wish them the best of luck, but I would bet on Amazon winning this fight overall.

I heard about this a while ago. I just thought, We are all stuck with these big conglomerates. I'm convinced there will only be one bank someday, And Amazon will swallow up all the other people online. Don't get me started with the getting-unbelievably-large cable company that is getting more expensive by the day.
