Antitrust laws are a check on private power which can become abusive and overwhelm government.  Teddy Roosevelt was the trust buster in the early 1900’s.  Breakups of Standard Oil, US steel, and the railroads spawned competition, growth, and improved business and employment practices.  Today, we have tremendous concentration in the “Tech Trusts” and serious questions are being raised in lawsuits and proposed legislation that it is time to break up the monopolistic hold of Facebook, Amazon and Google on our country.

INSTRUCTORJean Sifleet is a retired attorney and CPA.  During her business career of over 40 years, she worked in corporate management, consulting, and private practice.  She has taught business and intellectual property law.  In retirement, Jean served as an Access to Justice Fellow and worked with the Mass Law Reform Institute on immigration policy and reform initiatives.
