当选江苏高考英语卷的文章来自5月6日的《经济学人》

本年江苏高考英文试卷阅览了解c有些,呈现了选自《经济学人》五月的新文章,谈论一个并不简略的论题:“数据经济”。出题人将一千余字的原文紧缩至将近五百字,并用平易的词替代了原文中对大学生来说或许较为偏僻的词,还为某些词加了注释。例如,出题人谈心肠将开篇的“a new commodity spawns a lucrative, fast-growing industry, prompting antitrust regulators to step in to restrain those who control its flow.”一句改写成“ a new commodity brings about a highly profitable, fast-growing industry, urging antitrust(反独占)regulators to step in to check those who control its flow.”虽如此,仍有网友认为批改后文章的难度直逼大学英语六级的水平。

?regulating the data economy

the world’s most valuable resource
vast flows of data give some firms unprecedented power. to keep them in check, antitrust rules must catch up

a new commodity spawns a lucrative, fast-growing industry, prompting antitrust regulators to step in to restrain those who control its flow. a century ago, the resource in question was oil. now similar concerns are being raised by the giants that deal in data, the oil of the digital era. these titans—alphabet (谷歌’s parent company), amazon, apple, facebook and microsoft—look unstoppable. they are the five most valuable listed firms in the world. their profits are surging: they collectively racked up over $25bn in net profit in the first quarter of 2021. amazon captures half of all dollars spent online in america. 谷歌 and facebook accounted for almost all the revenue growth in digital advertising in america last year.

such dominance has prompted calls for the tech giants to be broken up, as standard oil was in the early 20th century. this newspaper has argued against such drastic action in the past. size alone is not a crime. the giants’ success has benefited consumers. few want to live without 谷歌’s search engine, amazon’s one-day delivery or facebook’s newsfeed. nor do these firms raise the alarm when standard antitrust tests are applied. far from gouging consumers, many of their services are free (users pay, in effect, by handing over yet more data). take account of offline rivals, and their market shares look less worrying. and the emergence of upstarts like snapchat suggests that new entrants can still make waves.

but there is cause for concern. internet companies’ control of data gives them enormous power. old ways of thinking about competition, devised in the era of oil, look outdated in what has come to be called the “data economy”. a new approach is needed.

… …

who ya gonna call, trustbusters?
the nature of data makes the antitrust remedies of the past less useful. breaking up a firm like 谷歌 into five 谷歌ts would not stop network effects from reasserting themselves: in time, one of them would become dominant again. a radical rethink is required—and as the outlines of a new approach start to become apparent, two ideas stand out.

the first is that antitrust authorities need to move from the industrial era into the 21st century. when considering a merger, for example, they have traditionally used size to determine when to intervene. they now need to take into account the extent of firms’ data assets when assessing the impact of deals. the purchase price could also be a signal that an incumbent is buying a nascent threat. on these measures, facebook’s willingness to pay so much for whatsapp, which had no revenue to speak of, would have raised red flags. trustbusters must also become more data-savvy in their analysis of market dynamics, for example by using simulations to hunt for algorithms colluding over prices or to determine how best to promote competition.

the second principle is to loosen the grip that providers of online services have over data and give more control to those who supply them. more transparency would help: companies could be forced to reveal to consumers what information they hold and how much money they make from it. governments could encourage the emergence of new services by opening up more of their own data vaults or managing crucial parts of the data economy as public infrastructure, as india does with its digital-identity system, aadhaar. they could also mandate the sharing of certain kinds of data, with users’ consent—an approach europe is taking in financial services by requiring banks to make customers’ data accessible to third parties.

rebooting antitrust for the information age will not be easy. it will entail new risks: more data sharing, for instance, could threaten privacy. but if governments don’t want a data economy dominated by a few giants, they will need to act soon.
