Chris Versace’s PowerTalk with Susan Crawford, Author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age

[Remote control]

by: Chris Versace

Welcome to PowerTalk, where we talk with CEOs, COOs and other key business people at public and private companies as well as other subject matter experts.

In recent weeks, we’ve heard from a number of cable companies like Comcast (CMCSA), Charter Communications (CHTR), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and others. All in all, it’s been a message that reinforces the increasing degree of what I call the Connected Society – WiFi, the Cloud, high speed Internet and on demand programming. The growing Connected Society is a key part of my Always On, Always Connected PowerTrend.

Joining me on PowerTalk to discuss why this is, and what it means is Susan P. Crawford author of the new book “Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age.” Ms. Crawford is a law professor who served as special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation policy.

It’s a terrific conversation and not only is Susan an ace on the subject matter; she doesn’t pull any punches.
