JONATHAN TEPPER - AUTHOR OF "THE MYTH OF CAPITALISM" - DECEMBER 2018 Lend Me Your Ear

    • News

Jonathan Tepper is the co-author of "The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition".

In his book, Tepper describes how America has gone from an open, competitive marketplace to an economy where a few very powerful companies dominate key industries that affect our daily lives – from health insurance, to many consumer goods and also tech giants like Google and Facebook and Amazon.

“Every day, ordinary people transfer their money to monopolists and oligopolists” says Tepper – proposing instead vigorous anti-trust legislation to return America and other Western nations including the UK to an era when competition created higher economic growth, more jobs and higher wages, and more start-up companies too.

As a founder of several companies himself, with a background in both finance and citizen journalism, this is a story Tepper is well-qualified to tell.
