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
"Constitutional scholar Akhil Reed Amar tells the story of America's constitutional conversation during its first eighty years--from the Constitution's birth in 1760 through the 1830s, when the last of America's early leaders died. Amar traces the threads of Constitutional discourse, uniting history and law in a narrative that seeks both to reveal this history anew and to make clear who was right and who was wrong on the biggest legal issues confronting early America. Amar provides an essential history of the Constitution's formative decades and an indispensable guide for anyone seeking to understand America's Constitution and its relevance today"-- Provided by publisher.
