Initiative on Digital Competition
The continued and rapid growth of digital platforms has generated questions about the consequences for society, business, and the global economy. The USC Marshall Initiative on Digital Competition, starting in January 2021, aims to discover insights on these questions through a collaboration of industry practitioners and academics from business disciplines as well as non-business disciplines (e.g. computer science, economics, law, communications); and disseminate these insights to a broad set of audiences that includes academics, business leaders, and the public.

- Implications of regulatory policies on digital platform competition, and value creation
- Evaluation of policy proposals by lawmakers, think tanks, as well as by industry trade groups and consumer advocates
