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
"Formaldehyde, borax, salicylic acid. Today, these chemicals are used in embalming fluids, cleaning supplies, and acne medications. But in 1900, they were routinely added to food that Americans ate from cans and jars. Often products weren't safe because unregulated, unethical companies added these and other chemicals to trick consumers into buying spoiled food or harmful medicines. Chemist Harvey Washington Wiley recognized these dangers and began a relentless thirty-year campaign to ensure that consumers could purchase safe food and drugs, eventually leading to the creation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA. Acclaimed nonfiction and Sibert Honor winning author Gail Jarrow uncovers this intriguing history in her trademark style that makes the past enthrallingly relevant for today's young readers"--Amazon.
