Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst / Pundit focuses on a panoply of issues/concerns:
- President Joe Biden is set to sign sweeping legislation via executive order intended to curb the power of big business by stamping out anti-competitive practices that harm smaller rivals. 72 measures were unveiled on Friday, July 9th which includes a ban on non-compete clauses for workers. It will span industries from technology, transport, healthcare, and banking.
- Additionally called for is stronger enforcement of anti-trust laws which will likely engage greater scrutiny of mergers and acquisitions.
- The move is part of a broader push by the Biden Administration to tackle concentrated corporate power, even usurp an anticipated Congressional initiative to rewrite competition policy for large tech companies.
- Biden’s order also directs the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to work with states and tribes to import prescription drugs from Canada in an effort to lower the costs of medicine
- Pushback from a tech think-tank suggested instead of changing anti-trust rules the White House should ensure agencies enforce existing antitrust laws. For everything else the White House is admonished to defer to Congress. The banking business suggest they are among the most competitive
- The rationale by Pres. Biden is to shift the balance of power away from corporations toward smaller businesses, and lower and middle class households.
- While the plan is defined, at issue is how much of the plan will be implemented. Many if the provisions are encouraged but not mandated by law. Is this a test run likely to lead to enactment in law? From 10:30am-11am.
