Lina Khan Will Take on Runaway Corporate Power at FTC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Joe Biden today announced his intent to nominate Professor Lina Khan to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, released the following statement:

“The news of Professor Lina Khan’s nomination to the FTC brings us one step closer to holding massive corporations accountable for harming workers, consumers, innovators, and our democracy. There is no doubt that Professor Khan has the corporate barons in Silicon Valley terrified, but other greedy and abusive firms should take heed as well. We applaud President Biden for recognizing the urgent need to address runaway corporate power, and we look forward to seeing him take a similar approach to filling the other vacancies with likeminded progressive leaders who will stand up to corporate abusers.”
