Monopolies w. Thom Hartmann

Published on: 16th November, 2022

While we have an abundance of choice as consumers in the United States, in many realms there are increasingly few options in terms of what, and from where, we can buy. Monopolies have existed in North America since the colonial era and, though fought aggressively in the mid-20th century, have reared their head once more in recent decades.

In this episode we have a conversation with author and radio host Thom Hartmann and explore the United States' long history in contending with and regulating monopolies.
