Reply To: Predatory Pricing


Nice thread.

I have a burning, and simple, question:

If there is no evidence of predatory pricing by a company in American history… where did Anti-Trust legislation get its support? (I’ve read Woods 33 questions and IPC Guide to US History)

What companies did what to offend the public and government to the point that considerable time and effort was used to harass and break apart companies?

I find it difficult to believe the government did it just because or just for votes. Some specific things must have set off the crusade.

I am currently teaching a high school US history course and want to properly explain the motivation behind the laws.
