The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition

#ad
Wiley #ad - Amazon is capturing almost all online shopping dollars. The myth of capitalism tells the story of how America has gone from an open, competitive marketplace to an economy where a few very powerful companies dominate key industries that affect our daily lives. It tackles the big questions of: why is the us becoming a more unequal society, why is economic growth anemic despite trillions of dollars of federal debt and money printing, why the number of start-ups has declined, and why are workers losing out.

Every day, the average American transfers a little of their pay check to monopolists and oligopolists. We have the illusion of choice, health insurance, when it comes to high speed Internet, mortgage title insurance, social networks, but for most critical decisions, Internet searches, medical care, we have only one or two companies, or even consumer goods like toothpaste.

The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and the Death of Competition #ad - The myth of capitalism is the story of industrial concentration, but it matters to everyone, because the stakes could not be higher. The solution is vigorous anti-trust enforcement to return America to a period where competition created higher economic growth, more jobs, higher wages and a level playing field for all.

Digital monopolies like Google, Facebook and Amazon act as gatekeepers to the digital world.
