Normally I very much enjoy reading Willem Buiter’s Maverecon blog at the FT. Yet reading Buiter’s post – Gagging on Google, I wondered what event had triggered his OTT rant. Much of which seemed as variance with reality as a number of commenters pointed out in the thread.
Like much of Buiter’s commentary it is provocative, though more of a rant than usual.A somewhat bizarre read, but strangely engaging all the same. At the end of the day Buiter may have a point regarding whether it is a good thing for one company to have such market dominance, but then another company may well come along and knock Google off it’s perch for such is the reality of the web.
