    I think we have come a long way in antitrust regulation since its inception. An understanding that large marketshare is not necessarily a bad thing, especially when it is a result of innovation is far more prevalent. Some logical price fixing schemes have even been allowed with an efficiency argument. Robinson Patman still needs to be repealed, but it is largely ignored by the DOJ.

    While there have certainly been a lot of bad Supreme Court decisions and laws passed, it seems that enforcement of these regulations is getting more reasonable. At the same time other regulation has created more barriers to entry and retrained competition. So I just wanted to get yalls opinion on Price Fixing, Monopoly, Oligopoly, Mergers, Cartels, and anything to with this subject.

    Why Is There No List Of Tyrants?

    In another forum, an old friend posted a photo of the LA tracks, replete with train and mountains of garbage, titling it "Biden's America". Biden is an easy $#@!-heel upon whom to hang the disaster that American is rapidly becoming, but as I pointed out, this is not the direct doing of a doddering old gas-bag child-sniffer. The result is creditable to those behind him, which has raised the...

    Is the Fed even tapering?

    Thread Starter: Madison320

    Has anyone else noticed that the Fed's tapering that was supposed to start in November, hasn't seemed to start yet? They should be down to around 60 billion a month for january but they're still over 100 billion. My guess is they're already having trouble with rates spiking and are trying to delay the taper for as long as possible, hoping for a miracle. ...
