As the Justice Department’s antitrust suit against Google parent Alphabet Inc. heads to a Friday (10/30) hearing in U.S. District Court, Maryland Smith’s Kislaya Prasad is available to expand on his comments, excerpted from DOJ and Google:

 “Google’s search monopoly is too narrow, if not the wrong target,” he warns.

“The real issue is the range of businesses that Google is in while also being a gatekeeper through control of Internet search, for example, listings for hotel or flight bookings, which Google also offers, and forces competitors to advertise to climb above their listings.”

Prasad ([email protected]) is a research professor and Academic Director of the Center for Global Business at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School.
