FHI Report: How Will National Security Considerations Affect Antitrust Decisions in AI? An Examination of Historical Precedentspost by Cullen_OKeefe · 2020-07-28T18:34:23.537Z · score: 2 (1 votes) · LW · GW · None comments
Part I lists and analyzes the cases I identified, then lists several conclusions I was able to draw from my case studies. Those conclusions are:
- National security considerations have entered the antitrust enforcement process numerous times over the past 100 years.
- It is rare for the USG to actively use antitrust enforcement to advance unrelated national security objectives.
- In cases where national security and economic considerations conflict, economics has been given more weight over time.
- The president plays an important role in reconciling conflicting considerations.
Part II discusses how these conclusions might apply to AI firms in the coming decades.
