Let me tell you a little about Lina. Lina attended Yale Law school and while a third-year law student she wrote her famous and influential article Amazon’s Anti-Trust Paradox. Then, after graduating from law school, she worked as the legal director at the Open Markets Institute and during that period she continued to write a large number of influential antitrust papers. She then joined the faculty of my alma mater, Columbia Law School. In 2019, she was appointed as counsel to the U.S. House Judiciary Subcomittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law and, in 2021, President Biden appointed her as Chair of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Quite a trajectory for a young scholar. With that, I’d like to welcome our keynote speaker, Lina Khan, the Chair of the Federal Trade Commission.
We have some questions for you Lina, but before I start, I just want to say that you were here in Utah in 2019 and that was before your appointment to the FTC. At that time, you made a lot of fans here, and we’re still fans. Welcome back Madam Chair.
