What’s going on at the Federal Trade Commission? Highlights from a conversation with Bilal Sayyed

Under Chairwoman Lina Khan’s leadership, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is undergoing a number of process reforms that are poised to make the commission less democratic by allocating more power to the chair herself. If successful, what impact will these reforms have on the future of the commission — and on the laws it’s tasked with enforcing?

We recently sat down with Bilal Sayyed, a TechFreedom senior adjunct fellow and former director of the FTC’s Office of Policy Planning, for an “Explain to Shane” discussion on the situation at the FTC. Bilal shared his insights on how Khan’s reforms will reshape long-standing policies around how the FTC is run, and on the challenges companies may face under the new FTC’s scrutiny.
