How antitrust laws protect consumers
Posted on Friday, October 2nd, 2009 at 2:26 am
As companies grow in size and begin to dominate the market, they may come up against antitrust laws. These laws are meant to protect consumers from large businesses that may monopolize markets.
Such monopolies are disadvantageous to consumers because the large businesses can charge unfair prices for goods and services. One of the common signs of a monopoly is when a large business begins acquiring its smaller competitors.
