In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Please stop the Staples/Essendant merger. America is now a nation of oligopolies, wherein 3-4 corporations control nearly 100% of any given product. This stifles competition, raises consumer prices, and reduces innovation greatly. Please stop this merger madness in America. Remember the airlines, when we had many of them, and actually HAD competition in America? Have you been on a flight lately? Do you STILL think we have competition in the Airline industry?
