Abstract "An exploration of antitrust laws and their enforcement, and of the importance of antitrust for the American people"-- Provided by publisher.
Abstract Monopolies can hurt consumers and cause marketplace stagnation. Klobuchar argues for swift, sweeping reform in economic, legislative, social welfare, and human rights policies, and describes plans, ideas, and legislative proposals designed to strengthen antitrust laws and antitrust enforcement. She examines the historic and current fights against monopolies in America, beginning with the Gilded Age when builders of fortunes and rapacious robber barons were reaping vast fortunes as industrialization swept across the American landscape. She provides a fascinating exploration of antitrust in America-- and offers a way forward to protect all Americans from the dangers of curtailed competition, vast information gathering, and monopolies. -- adapted from jacket.
