How big will Amazon be allowed to grow?

Can anything slow the growth of Amazon? Ivey finance professor George Athanassakos explains that lawmakers in the United States could make things more difficult for the e-commerce giant.

In an op-ed for The Globe and Mail, Athanassakos notes there is a history of government intervention when a corporation commands such overwhelming market influence.

"There is precedence for government to get involved when a company has become a dominant player in the market and uses its position to stifle competition," says Athanassakos.
