Typically whenever large corporations are allowed to merge and form even larger corporations, the consumers suffer. The basis for our capitalistic economy is competition and such mergers tend to decrease the competition, thus causing higher prices with fewer alternatives for the consumers. Please take these points into consideration when deciding on allowing the merger request from Staples.
