Governments are just learning the power that an algo holds over the globe. Just now that reality is hitting home. It's why as Page say, it's Google vs Google. I can't think of a more scary industry to have a monopoly on. Controlling the flow of information. That's massive. 97% market share in mobile search.
Yes, Page is right. But in a way he's way wrong. The biggest threat to Goodle (other than gaining more market share) is the government. That's the threat whether he believes that or not. It's the domino effect. A dominant company, creates loyalty, leading to a monopoly, leading to government intervention. So in theory, if Google wasn't so good at what they do, then they wouldn't be having these hearing with governments.
