Antitrust laws were enacted at a time when it seems that a handful of powerful men controlled commerce. Are they still relevant? Do you see any examples of monopolistic business practices today?  Why is government approval required when two large companies propose a merger?

Can government even come close to regulating anticompetitive practices in a digital age? Thoughts? However, in the spirit of debate… is there an example where a merger and/or acquisition actually treated the consumer well?

The Sherman Antitrust Act and the Clayton Act both work together to eliminate antitrust activity in the United States. Why do we need both Acts? What is the difference between the two?  Have the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and the Clayton Act been failures?
We know what the Sherman and Clayton Acts do and we know the government has used them. In fact, the government spent millions of dollars breaking up the monopoly AT&T had on telecommunications in the 70s. What happened to the Baby Bells? And, what about AT&T? Was this an exercise in futility or do government officials think the consumer public is stupid?…
