DOJ Saves Film Animation from Monopoly, Ghost of Walt Disney Laughs


D.A. Ridgely

D.A. Ridgely holds degrees in philosophy and law. (He doesn't really hold them, they just hang there on the wall or peek out as initials after his name. (Actually, that isn't true, either. Those are mere symbols giving evidence of his possession of those degrees. (“Possession,” strictly speaking, being a metaphor of sorts.))) (He is overly fond of parenthetical expressions.)

    It things like that that lead me to think that while there are theoretical merits to having anti-trust law, in practice I’m not so sure it’s a good idea.

    Though the policy wonk in me wonders if there isn’t a better way to do it. If I were in a position to reform anti-trust law I’d re-arrange it to focus on contestability rather than concentration. It really doesn’t matter how many or few firms are in the market, so long as it’s relatively easy for new firms are able to enter.Report

    Oh come on! What is the point of being an extremely talented technical professional if you can’t get two or more companies into a bidding war over your services?! That is half the fun of doing all the hard work (math classes, science classes, programming classes, make work, grunt work, practice work that will never amount to anything except to hone your abilities, etc. (see, a parenthetical expression!)) to become an extremely talented technical professional.

    This regulation needs to expand and cover the legal profession & the financial sectors. Betcha it evaporates pretty quick then.Report

    I really don’t understand your take on this, several tech companies colluded to suppress the wages of employees and the DoJ intervened (FT). What is the problem?Report

    Makes for an interesting pursuit: If we remove antitrust laws from the non-essential matter of cartoon production, then perhaps we can remove it also from the less-essential matter of baseball?Report
