In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
This is another form of making the already rich, richer at the cost to the consumer and labor, that is, ordinary citizens. My understanding is that the FTC is there to advocate for the consumer not for rich guys getting richer through sophisticated schemes, When is enough money enough for these people? By not supporting the consumer and providing good competition in the marketplace you are helping to destroy our economy. When the consumer can no longer consume due to loss of jobs and higher prices ( no competition) then what will happen to our economy which depends on consumption??
