Time for anti-trust action?

  1. Feb 13, 2004 #1
    has it become immoral for our corporations to continue merging to the point that their "economy of size" has become drain on the quality of life for the individual.

    they lose efficiency and lay off 5000 workers. they have reduced the competetive playing field and only increase their net earnings per share.

    have "earnings per share" become nero's fiddle?

    i ain't got nuttin, and i am takin it all with me,

    Lose efficiency? Depends on how you define efficiency. Still, I agree. Anti-trust cases are neccessary, because pure capitalism will fail precisely due to monopolising..
