In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
I urgently ask the FTC to block the Staples/Esseendant (File # 1810180) merger. The merger would perpetuate the current trend of shrinking and/or destroying companies in order to allow wealthy owners and share-holders to amass greater wealth, reduce competition, and impose massive job loss on low-income families. It would only serve to further reinforce the consolidation of wealth and power which have been undermining our democractic ideals and aspirations.
