Preventing Monopoly — Canadian Techniques

  • F. A. McGregor
Part of the International Economic Association Coference Numbers 1–50 book series (IEA)


IN this discussion of Canadian techniques of monopoly prevention, no attempt is made to argue a case for the preventive method as against other measures of control, for measures to maintain competition as against either public regulation or government ownership and/or operation. It is recognized that there is an important place in every free economy for each of these methods. No claim is made, therefore, that ‘competition’ has or should have any monopoly of the field. This disclaimer is entered at the outset, even though it is so reminiscent to the writer of similar disclaimers, ‘we have no monopoly’, heard in the early stages of nearly every monopoly investigation he has conducted.
