Barack Obama And Anti Trust Enforcement

The NEW YORK TIMES reported recently that the Obama Administration is planning tough enforcement of the anti trust laws, which were totally ignored during the Bush Presidency.

The industries likely to be investigated and pursued in court include the airlines, railroads, food processors, cable companies, pharmaceutical companies, wireless phone industry,  financial services companies, and agreements between Google and the book publishing industry.

After decades of lack of regulation of big business and the growing of monopolies detrimental to the interests of the American people, this is a welcome step, but as always, the accomplishment of this goal is a lot harder than the intention!
