For the first time in decades the “consumer welfare standard” for antitrust scrutiny is being seriously challenged by forces on both sides of the political spectrum. On the Left, the Biden administration has appointed unapologetic advocates of aggressive antitrust intervention to head key agencies, and on the right populists have suddenly embraced federal government power as a tool to satisfy their frustrations with “Big Tech.”
