Conference: When tech giants take control

Join the debate on Tuesday 21st February! Jeremy Ghez, HEC Paris Professor of Economics and International Affairs, will introduce his research on the rise of the tech oligopoly comprising Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple (GAFAs). The presentation will be followed by a conversation with LSE Professor Saul Estrin.

  • These giants are not only profoundly shaping the tech industry, but also redefining the notion of governance. Taken together, GAFAs generated $433 billion in revenues in 2015, putting them at the same level as a medium-sized economy in terms of financial weight and economic might.
    During the session, Profs. Ghez and Estrin will discuss what their sheer financial weight means to the global economy and society, from influencing personal behaviours to fostering new geopolitical trends.

    How are GAFAs influencing rules and priorities in our daily life?
    How do they reshape our perception of space and relationships?
    What role do they play in the emergence of worldwide geopolitical trends?
    Are GAFAs redefining the whole notion of power?
    ​The conference ​will take place at the London School of Economics and will be followed by a networking reception at The Marquess of Anglesey (39 Bow St, London WC2E 7AU)​.
