How Big Does Big Have to be Before It's Too Big?


Whether the Obama administration has time to do much more with yet another big merger proposal or not, one question that one can ask here is this: Has he shown all that much leadership in the opposition to the further concentration of market reach by major corporations? I think the answer is spotty at best; precisely what you'd expect from a liberal who would want to keep his base at least partially placated. And even though Clinton has indicated her oppostion to past big drug mergers, can we expect her to be all that much different than Obama when the rubber finally meets the road? You are a good deal more of an optomist than I am if you think so.
