Ted Cruz, Penis Mishaps + Matt Stoller on Big Tech Monopoly & Surveillance Advertising

Useful Idiots with Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper

In this Useful Idiots interview, Matt Stoller walks us through some of the myths about big tech. Many members of Congress seem to believe the firms don’t intervene enough; Stoller explains that their massive existing levels of intervention are the problem, that the financial incentives of what he calls “surveillance advertising” move firms like Facebook to push users in the direction of ever more enraging, divisive, and conspiratorial content.

What are ways for us to make sense of -- and reform -- economic systems that veil themselves as apolitical? Further, Rushkoff and Stoller discuss how neoliberal economic policy influenced both left and right political ideology in the twentieth century, how it contributed to President Obama'a bank bailouts, and explore alternative economic models that prioritize humans over capital.In his monologue, Rushkoff looks at how black communities have for centuries harbored a spirit of support and mutual aid that the rest of us are discovering only now.You can subscribe to Stoller’s email newsletter, Big, here: https://mattstoller.substack.com/welcomeYou can read the full version of Rushkoff’s monologue “How Centuries of Black Strength Created a Blueprint for Economic Recovery” on Medium’s GEN: https://gen.medium.com/americas-black-communities-created-the-blueprint-for-collective-recovery-e89e792dc124— Support Us —Team Human is made possible thanks to the generous support of our listeners on Patreon.On Patreon: http://patreon.com/teamhumanBecome a Contributing Subscriber: TeamHuman.fmReview the show on Apple Podcasts!— Follow Team Human Show —Twitter: http://twitter.com/teamhumanshowInstagram: http://instagram.com/teamhumanshowMedium: http://medium.com/teamhuman#TeamHumanShow #FindTheOthers— Follow Douglas Rushkoff —Twitter: http://twitter.com/rushkoffMedium: https://medium.com/@rushkoffInstagram: http://instagram.com/douglasrushkoffFacebook: https://facebook.com/rushkoff/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rushkoff/— Credits —Hosted by Douglas RushkoffProduced by Josh ChapdelaineAudio Edited & Mixed by Luke Robert MasonOur community manager is Michael Bass.Music by Fugazi (On this Episode you heard “Foreman’s Dog” in the intro – thanks to the kindness of the band and Dischord Records.)Special thanks to Stephen Bartolomei.Team Human is a Production of the Laboratory for Digital Humanism at Queens College.

Matt Stoller on Taking on the Tech Goliaths

Big Tech

Is it possible to access the internet without interacting with the big five American tech companies? Technically, yes, but large swaths of the web would be inaccessible to consumers without the products and platforms created by Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet, Google’s parent company. In this episode of Big Tech, co-hosts David Skok and Taylor Owen speak with Matt Stoller, the director of research at the American Economic Liberties Project and the author of Goliath: The 100-Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy. Stoller looks at how the political landscape has changed from the time of the railroad tycoons to the modern Silicon Valley tech monopolies. Each of these companies has established itself in a market-leading position in different ways. On mobile, Apple’s App Store is the only way for software developers to reach iPhone customers. Google controls search, maps and online advertising. Amazon’s website is the dominant online retail platform. “In some ways, it’s a little bit like saying, well, you know, that railroad that goes through this one narrow valley that you have to take to get to market, well, that’s not a monopoly, because there are other railroads in the country,” Stoller says. “Well, yeah, maybe there are, but it doesn’t matter if you need that particular railroad to get where you’re going…. that’s what Amazon is like in a lot of the sectors that it deals with.” Finally, underpinning much of the internet are Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services cloud data centres. Is corporate power a political problem or a market problem? Skok, Owen and Stoller discuss topics ranging from the robber barons of the 1930s and the antitrust reforms that followed, to the current environment, one that evolved over several political generations to become, as Stoller describes it, a crisis of concentration separated from “caretaking,” in which profits can amass through domination rather than through better products or services.
