New York, March 23 -- US President Joe Biden is likely to nominate 32-year-old Lina Khan from Columbia Law as the commissioner of Federal Trade Commissioner (FTC). She is known as leading voice in the antitrust movement.
If nominated by Biden administration and confirmed by Senate, she will become the youngest ever FTC Commissioner. She will be overseeing privacy, data security and antitrust.
While still a law student at Yale, Khan cranked out a 96-page zinger titled "Amazon's Antitrust Paradox", published in the Yale Law Journal in January 2017.
Broadly, Khan's argument is that the old antitrust framework needs an internet era fix. She makes the case that the consumer surplus argument alone isn't enough or ever intelligent anymore.
