Excerpt from the article at website above:

Tim Wu’s important book *The Curse of Bigness* is a cautionary tale about
how ugly things can get when government turns from a countervailing force
to private power and becomes a co-conspirator (hint: it involves

Newstead, a talented lawyer who was the intellectual tonic to wash down the
Patriot Act and other legislation that in large part was later deemed
