America’s first law against monopolies, the Sherman Antitrust Act, was passed in 1890. Senator John Sherman’s compelling argument opened with, “If we will not endure a king as a political power, we should not endure a king over the production, transportation, and sale of any of the necessaries of life.”
Corporate Kingdoms Often Produce Mergers
According to The Economist, a paper in the RAND Journal of Economics addressed the 2008 “close call” merger of the second and third largest US brewers, Miller and Coors. Attention was called to the possibility of America’s weak regulations helping to build corporate kingdoms.
Regulatory measures are harder to enforce when M&As are approved on close call mega corporations. The Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission are expected to drop their leniency with questionable anti-competitive measures.
