My wife manages a store for the country’s largest grocery chain.
Kroger raked in over $90 billion in sales during fiscal year 2012. The company employees some 339,000 people and runs more than 3,000 stores, either directly or through its subsidiaries.
Now imagine for a moment Kroger was granted a total monopoly on grocery sales in the United States. How would you feel about that?
I’d be pretty pleased; I’m not gonna lie. A Kroger monopoly would probably bode well for the Maharrey wallet.
But most Americans would throw an apoplectic fit. We intuitively distrust monopolies.
