Monopoly power threatens broader economic growth and exacerbates inequality by increasing prices, hindering new business formation, stifling innovation, and diminishing workers’ wages. Current research on the U.S. economy increasingly finds decreasing competition and increasing concentration across industries. Equitable Growth supports research to understand the causes and impacts of increasing market power and to develop policy proposals that will strengthen competition.
