Statement on today’s NetChoice Survey from Neil Chilson, Senior Research Fellow at the Charles Koch Institute and previous acting Chief Technologist at the Federal Trade Commission

“This survey is incredibly valuable, especially at this particular moment, as tech companies are coming under fire from lobbyists, activists, and politicians seeking to expand government regulation. NetChoice and Zogby Analytics have demonstrated that Americans want governments’ hands off. What’s more, such regulation isn’t necessary—consumers leave platforms they don’t like. Americans think more government regulations could actually harm them, and Washington should heed that advice.”

The Charles Koch Institute is interested in understanding how our culture embraces innovation or rejects it.  We believe America’s uniquely optimistic cultural attitude toward innovation and innovators has created enormous benefits, including making the United States a world leader in developing and adopting new technology.
