In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The FTC is allowing a major competitor to independent dealers to buy one of their primary suppliers. Despite this clear conflict of interest, the FTC has given the merger a green light with only minimal conditions. We've had enough of our government protecting big corporations at the expense of the little guy. It is supposed to be the people's government, not the corporation's. Whatever happened to fairness as part of the American way? We're done with the corruption and greedy money grubbing. The merger should not be allowed to go through at all.
