In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The FTC has the Duty to Ensure That Monopolies are not created or encouraged in the United States of America. Anti-Trust Laws were created in this Nation, to protect our economy and free market capitalism. Free market capitalism, can not function properly when monopolies are formed, that was the purpose and is ultimately the precedence of the Anti-trusts laws of the United States of America. Therefore, the proposed merger of Staples with company B is illegal, and must not be allowed to proceed.
