Eshaan Vakil (Brookings Mountain West and The Lincy Institute) and Katelin Gilbertson (Economics, Brookings Mountain West, and The Lincy Institute) recently co-authored, “Feds Aren’t Protecting You From Tech Giants,” published in the Nevada Current. Their story highlights the need for the Nevada Legislature to step up and follow in the footsteps of states such as California that are implementing tech reform initiatives across the state. They discuss the severe threats the monopolistic tech companies impose and call for more states to join a “fair tech coalition” as the technology sector could benefit local economies.
