Summary
Monopolies can hurt consumers and cause marketplace stagnation. Klobuchar argues for swift, sweeping reform in economic, legislative, social welfare, and human rights policies, and describes plans, ideas, and legislative proposals designed to strengthen antitrust laws and antitrust enforcement. She examines the historic and current fights against monopolies in America, beginning with the Gilded Age when builders of fortunes and rapacious robber barons were reaping vast fortunes as industrialization swept across the American landscape. She provides a fascinating exploration of antitrust in America-- and offers a way forward to protect all Americans from the dangers of curtailed competition, vast information gathering, and monopolies. -- adapted from jacket.

Summary
The Hour of Fate is the gripping story of a banker and a president thrown together in the crucible of national emergency even as they fought in court. The outcome of the strike and the case would change the course of our history. Today, as the country again asks whether saving democracy means taming capital, the lessons of Roosevelt and Morgan's time are more urgent than ever.

Summary
Ten years ago, the United States stood at the forefront of the Internet revolution. With some of the fastest speeds and lowest prices in the world for high-speed Internet access, the nation was poised to be the global leader in the new knowledge-based economy. Today that global competitive advantage has all but vanished because of a series of government decisions and resulting monopolies that have allowed dozens of countries to pass us in both speed and price of broadband. This steady slide backward not only deprives consumers of vital services needed in a competitive employment and business market--it also threatens the economic future of the nation. This important book by leading telecommunications policy expert Susan Crawford explores why Americans are now paying much more but getting much less.--From publisher description.
