Is Amazon A Trust?
by Frank McPherson Thursday, July 6, 2017

I’ve read Ben Thompson’s articles about Amazon and I can’t help but start to wonder how it isn’t a target for antitrust investigation. Trump’s feud with Bezos over the Washington Post makes me think he could ask the DOJ to investigate, but that would also be a very un-Republican thing to do.

So many people seem to fear Google and Facebook, but Amazon is slowly grabbing a piece of every financial transaction. It’s like a monopoly of the whole economy, not just an industry and isn’t that a bit like the railroads back when antitrust became a thing?
