US Government in Action: The Trust Issue
If you're like most of the public, you know very little about something that has an unimaginable impact on businesses, the economy, and the nation as a whole, from owners to management to employees— antitrust policy. In a democratic society, the ideal citizen is one who makes informed decisions about the issues that impact him, then acts according to those decisions. Hopefully this site will take you halfway on a highly misunderstood issue.
