A tech visionary who wrote the blueprint for the Reagan economic revolution and predicted the invention of the smartphone says the U.S. government’s move to build an antitrust case against the tech giants is harmful and unnecessary.

“I completely oppose an antitrust attack on these vital U.S. companies already under attack from Europe and China,” George Gilder, the author of “Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy,” told WND.

Gilder warned in a previous interview with WND that the “powers of government can be devastating” and contended antitrust action isn’t necessary.
