Apple, Amazon, Alphabet: Denise Hearn, co-author of The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition, takes a close-up look at the global Internet giants for us.

Denise Hearn reveals the aspects that constitute the digital market power of Apple and Co. and considers the dangers that insidious monopolisation poses for all of us.
