Data platform has greatly benefitted our economy and society. In the meantime, there is a concern that digitalized platform tends to monopolize markets and to misguide consumers’ decision making by providing personalized information. The purpose of this project is to propose a new approach to resurrect and maintain competitiveness in digitalized markets with data platforms.
To protect consumer benefits from data platforms, digital competition policy should tackle new challenges arisen by coordination and pacing problems.
