Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is in the race for the 2020 nomination for U.S. President, is set to present a regulatory plan aimed at breaking up some of America's largest technology companies, including Amazon.com Inc AMZN.O, Alphabet Inc GOOGL.O and Facebook Inc FB.O, she wrote in a blog post on Friday

One more thought-

Regardless of the competitive merits of breaking up Amazon/Google/Facebook/etc., the geopolitical reality is that China Tech Inc. will not follow suit with their own breakups.

Given China's willingness to spy and steal intellectual property, given China's willingness to use technology to incentivize citizens to behave "properly", why tip the balance of power in emerging nations from American tech giants to Chinese alternatives?

Why give Chinese firms the leg up in India or Indonesia or even in certain European countries?

China will supplement their physical Belt & Road aspirations with a digital B&R power play.

Then again, maybe Team Warren can force Apple to use its cash hoard as a downpayment on reparations.

Political silly season is coming :)
