    It’s short sighted but gets click bait attention. If she really wants to foster competition and break up monopolies, how about addressing more important companies that we use every day... like say... I don’t know... telecom companies.

    How about breaking up both our political parties and create at least one part that isn't completely dumb?

      Why have only 2 parties? Should be more, the more the merrier. Let’s start with political parties first and then talk about FAANG

    Personally, I think it’s a good idea. FAANG are so big that they are having long term effect on the workforce in the US in general. Most smaller companies can’t compete and are lagging behind. I don’t agree with breakup, but some regulation should exist to make sure FAANG should help smaller local companies grow and not just put them out of business.

      No wonder you said FAANG! Let’s keep it FANG then, Apple doesn’t match FANG pay.

      @Yolo! Is Amazon pay amazing? I heard that Amazon is pretty cheap. People get high TC simply because of sky rocketing stock price is what I heard.

      I’m not a manager or a recruiter, I can’t vouch where the pay ranges are on average. I can tell you that Apple is cheap because half the folks who interview from Lab126 tell me Apple can’t EVEN match the pay; let alone bettering it. Leaving the sky rocketing stock aside, I’m EXTREMELY critical to my org and my target comp is 400k. IF the stock goes up, it becomes merrier.

      ^But I believe that given my email history, search, and maps. Not a surprise

    Why aren't they breaking up Comcast or GM or big banks? Those are businesses that can be de-mergered or separated by the big 4-6 regions.

    ^ what he said. FAANG is definitely the biggest threat to our democracy and free market capitalism though.

    I think it’s probably good for SWEs and for startups

      Good for SWEs in Europe, Australia, Israel and China you mean. Not good for American SWEs.

    It's something that shouldn't need a new president to enforce. When was the last time you heard a merger/acquisition get blocked? Everyone's busy making money.

  • It’s ok to break up monopolies. Not as ok to break up monopolies that people want.

      Why would people want monopolies? Is it like people wanting faster horse-carriages?
