Large software companies have become a target for criticism. Google, Facebook, Amazon and other prominent technology giants find themselves under a kind of scrutiny that is reminiscent of banks in 2008 and oil companies in the early 1900s. Across the planet, there is a growing sentiment that “big tech” has too much power, and that they are abusing that power in order to dominate markets, censor speech, and manipulate politics.

Tyler Cowen is the author of Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero. He is also the host of the popular podcast Conversations with Tyler and an economist at George Mason University. In Big Business, Tyler explores the modern relationships between consumers and businesses, including the large technology companies.

Tyler joins the show to discuss his new book. In previous episodes with Tyler, we also talked about his previous books as well as the effects of technology on American society and the philosophical approaches software engineers can bring to their careers.
