Legal academic Lina Khan has been appointed to lead the US Federal Trade Commission, America’s consumer and competition watchdog. Khan previously worked on Congressional inquiries into big technology companies, and came to prominence after a 2017 legal article which was highly critical of Amazon’s power. Her appointment has been welcomed by consumer groups. Also today, we report on the challenges facing workers in Ethiopia’s tourism industry ahead of elections next week.
