A recently completed multi-million pound project on Bond Street has created a new public square with greater proportion of road space turned to pedestrian-only use.

Congress had summoned their employers Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon to answer questions about the command they hold over the markets they operate in. On Amazon’s behalf, associate general counsel Nate Sutton spoke in defense of his employer’s role in US retail.
