Along the way, he examines the dangers that come with it, and how they can be mitigated.In these summaries, we'll look at how and why this problem first emerged in the late nineteenth century, subsided in the early to mid-twentieth century and then reemerged in the late twentieth century. While taking this whirlwind tour of economic, political and legal history, we'll also look at the troubling consequences of economic concentration, as well as some possible solutions. Along the way, you'll learn: The counterintuitive arguments in favor of monopolies; The compelling arguments against monopolies; and The important figures and movements who made those arguments.
