FTC to investigate Google’s Waze acquistion

Google may have beat out Apple and Facebook when it bought social mapping app Waze. But the search giant’s acquisition of the Israel-based start-up may run afoul of U.S. antitrust regulations. The Federal Trade Commission is conducting an antitrust review of the $1.1 billion purchase. If Google’s move is seen as purely anti-competitive, the FTC could break up the deal.

Todd Wasserman, business editor at the website Mashable, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
