In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Private equity takeovers do not benefit consumers, our economy or our democracy. A tiny minority of people will become wealthier and more powerful, while hundreds or more loose their jobs, going concerns go under, competition is reduced and, undoubtably, the federal government will have to clean up the mess. I am a tax payer and I do not want to do that with my taxes. Stop the Staples merger.
