We Have A Market Concentration Problem

An interview with Vanessa A. Bee from Current Affairs

By: Austin C. Yenne

 

Earlier this month Vanessa wrote an article called “The Rules of Monopoly”. You might naturally think this article would be about the popular Milton Bradley board game Monopoly that most people grew up playing. In reality, it's about the dangers our society is facing with more and more businesses merging and thus creating less and less competition. She lays out a thorough case on the pressing need to address this problem and to start breaking these companies up. I recently reached out to her to talk about her compelling article and the consequential problems we face with these large mergers.
