In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
Mergers and monopolies are putting small business out of business. Corporations are gaining far too much power and communities and the environment are suffering as a result. As businesses grow to gargantuan size, they hold cities and states hostage to dramatic reductions in the tax base causing the average citizen to foot the bill. It's time to restore laws and regulations that limit the size of corporations in order to allow for small business and communities to thrive.
