In the eyes of Open Markets Institute fellow Matt Stoller, how has the rise of monopolies and corporate centralization in America led to a crisis of democracy?

How did government policy contribute to this?

And, how has the Chinese Communist Party used monopoly power to its advantage against the U.S., using companies like Huawei?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.
