The disruptive impact of the rise of the tech giants will shape and influence society, the economy, and political trends for the foreseeable future. This course will equip students with the skills and the knowledge to become informed participants in the debates on managing the social, economic, and political impact of the rise of the tech giants. It will examine the threat of tech monopoly power, the role of the state in promoting and shaping the growth and development of the tech sector, and the impact of the tech sector on social stability and the authority and legitimacy of state institutions. None of the debates on these issues have been definitively concluded. Do the tech giants qualify as monopolies? If they do, what are the appropriate strategies for curbing their power? Should the state play a major role in promoting and regulating the growth and development of the tech sector? Will the products, services, and platforms provided by the tech giants exacerbate inequality and undermine the public’s trust in state institutions? This course, whose main case studies are the US and Chinese tech giants, will help students to formulate their own answers to these questions.
