Google and Facebook have come under particular scrutiny lately.
In Google’s case, see the video and related report found by clicking on the linked-box below, as this shines a light on our industry in several ways.
Ask anyone who is involved in manufactured housing marketing if Google influences their business, and they will tell you, ” yes.” So, does the influence and power of Google help or harm our industry? Can it confuse or mislead people about the reality of manufactured homes?
MHProNews has noted that while change is often feared, the history of breaking up a trust like AT&T in the 1980s resulted in more growth. There are good reasons that a growing number of experts and advocates on either side of the left-right divide want to see the FAANGs broken up. Onto the list, should be Berkshire Hathaway too.
The following are not the only purported purveyors of monopolistic moats, manipulating misinformation, or harmful policies and practices. But they are a good start. The companies listed ought to broken up under federal antitrust laws. Not regulated. Broken up. Don’t worry, the world didn’t stop when the AT&T monopoly was broken up in the 1980s, America benefited.
Want more growth and less volatility? Break up the power of those that are able to manipulate and move politics and the markets so readily.
