Monopolies quotes by Herbert Hoover
#1. Freedom requires that government keep the channels of competition and opportunity open, prevent monopolies, economic abuse and domination. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Monopolies quotes by Robert Heilbroner
#2. Growth is the mantra of our society because the economy can't remain healthy without growth.Impregnable monopolies aside (and these are few), profits are both the hallmark of capitalism and its Achilles heel, for no business can permanently maintain its prices much above its costs. There is only one way in which profits can be perpetuated; a business-or an entire economy-must grow. #Quote by Robert Heilbroner
Monopolies quotes by Dennis Kucinich
#3. The problems that exist on Wall Street today go to the center of a debate in this country about wealth and democracy. We cannot keep our democracy if those who are in charge of handling the engines of our economy are not honest with their shareholders. That's why there is a role for government regulation here. That role for government is breaking up the monopolies, insisting on public disclosure, insisting on public audits, insisting on restitution whenever someone has been cheated. #Quote by Dennis Kucinich
Monopolies quotes by H.W. Brands
#4. or creed." These rights included: The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation; The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation; The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living; The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad; The right of every family to a decent home; The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment; The right to a good education. Roosevelt #Quote by H.W. Brands
Monopolies quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#5. This country would not be a land of opportunity, America could not be America, if the people were shackled with government monopolies. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge
Monopolies quotes by Kristin Ohlson
#6. Harl is a tenacious advocate for antitrust action against agribusiness, but he's not optimistic that without pressure from consumers, the government will go after these huge monopolies that control our food. "There's a huge amount of money and a lot of pressure applied whenever someone in Washington tries to do something about this," he told me. "That pressure is applied in the form of messages like 'Look, if you let this go on, we're going to diminish our support for your campaign.' When things get bad enough that consumers rise up, that's when we'll get another era of antitrust." How much money is involved? #Quote by Kristin Ohlson
Monopolies quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#7. That means following a very restrictive fiscal and monetary policy which will squeeze the monopolies and cut their subsidies. On the micro level we will allow other economic agents, both domestic and foreign, to compete with them. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
Monopolies quotes by Friedrich Hayek
#8. There is no answer in the available literature to the question why a government monopoly of the provision of money is universally regarded as indispensable ... It has the defects of all monopolies. #Quote by Friedrich Hayek
Monopolies quotes by Michael Hudson
#9. So the Bush-Obama administration has taken a fiscal stance diametrically opposed to that of the patron saint of free enterprise. While escalating war in Afghanistan and maintaining over 850 military bases around the world, the administration has run up the national debt that Smith decried. By shifting the tax burden off property and off rent-seeking monopolies - above all, off the financial sector - this policy has raised America's cost of living and doing business, thereby undercutting its competitive power and running up larger and larger foreign debt. #Quote by Michael Hudson
Monopolies quotes by Che Guevara
#10. The inflow of capital from the developed countries is the prerequisite for the establishment of economic dependence. This inflow takes various forms: loans granted on onerous terms; investments that place a given country in the power of the investors; almost total technological subordination of the dependent country to the developed country; control of a country's foreign trade by the big international monopolies; and in extreme cases, the use of force as an economic weapon in support of the other forms of exploitation. #Quote by Che Guevara
Monopolies quotes by Laurance Labadie
#11. The "health, education, and welfare" section of government is another boondoggle. First we manufacture indigent and superfluous people by legal monopolies in land, money and idea patents, erecting tariff barriers to protect monopolies from foreign competition, and taxing laborers to subsidize rich farmers and privileged manufacturers. Then we create "social workers, " etc., to care for them and thereby establish a self-aggravating and permanent institutionalized phenomenon ... #Quote by Laurance Labadie
Monopolies quotes by Yusuf Hamied
#12. India made a big mistake by signing up to TRIPS. With a population of 1.3 billion, India can't afford a monopoly in healthcare. Monopolies lead to higher prices and we can't allow them in a country like India with so much poverty and misery. It was like signing our own death warrant. #Quote by Yusuf Hamied
Monopolies quotes by Rudolf Rocker
#13. Anarchism is a definite intellectual current in the life of our times, whose adherents advocate the abolition of economic monopolies and of all political and social coercive institutions within society. In place of the present capitalistic economic order Anarchists would have a free association of all productive forces based upon co-operative labour, which would have as its sole purpose the satisfying of the necessary requirements of every member of society, and would no longer have in view the special interest of privileged minorities within the social union. #Quote by Rudolf Rocker
Monopolies quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#14. Massachusetts, like Queen Elizabeth, encouraged salt making through the granting of monopolies to those who showed the skill to produce salt cheaply. The colony granted Samuel Winslow a ten-year monopoly to employ his ideas on salt producing, which is considered the first patent issued in America. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Monopolies quotes by Mitch Kapor
#15. Old ways of thinking die hard, particularly when they were weaned by legally enforced monopolies. #Quote by Mitch Kapor
Monopolies quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#16. Monopolies, oligarchy, the striving for domination and not for freedom, the exploitation of an increasing number of small or weak nations by a handful of the richest or most powerful nations
all these have given birth to those distinctive characteristics of imperialism which compel us to define it as parasitic or decaying capitalism. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Monopolies quotes by Dan Glickman
#17. I don't think we can go back to the old days. But I think that what the government needs to do is it needs to make sure that the pricing is fair, that you don't have monopolies out there, so that people don't have a chance to compete fairly. #Quote by Dan Glickman
Monopolies quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#18. Most of those who could have done something to prevent the crime and did not consoled themselves with the pretext that affairs of honor are sacred monopolies, giving access only to those who are part of the drama. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Monopolies quotes by Nigel Rees
#19. How come there's only one Monopolies Commission? #Quote by Nigel Rees
Monopolies quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
#20. All developmental activities for the common man such as education, healthcare, shelter and food distribution should be handled by reputed private sector institutions. It should be a competitive market in order to prevent the formation of monopolies. #Quote by N. R. Narayana Murthy
Monopolies quotes by Rami Ollaik
#21. No despotism, no privileged monopolies, no police societies, no divine rights of the emirs or feudal landlords or shady priests and sheikhs. All had the same equal footing - the rich and the poor, the noble and the common. #Quote by Rami Ollaik
Monopolies quotes by Viktor Schauberger
#22. The revelation of the secret of water will put an end to all manner of speculation or expediency and their excrescences, to which belong war, hatred, impatience and discord of every kind. The thorough study of water therefore signifies the end of monopolies, the end of all domination in the truest sense of the word and the start of a socialism arising from the development of individualism in its most perfect form. #Quote by Viktor Schauberger
Monopolies quotes by Richard Cobden
#23. The twelve or fifteen millions in the British Empire, who, while they possess no electoral rights, are yet persuaded they are freemen, and who are mystified into the notion that they are not political bondmen, by that great juggle of the ' English Constitution ' a thing of monopolies, and Church-craft, and sinecures, armorial hocus-pocus, primogeniture, and pageantry! #Quote by Richard Cobden
Monopolies quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#24. To create conditions in which competition will be as effective as possible, to prevent fraud and deception, to break up monopolies- these tasks provide a wide and unquestioned field for state activity. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Monopolies quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#25. That strain of anti-monopoly crusading egalitarianism really runs throughout American history from [Tomas] Jefferson to Woodrow Wilson, that finds its apotheosis in [Louis] Brandeis, continues through the New Deal, but then it sort of peters out in the '60s because progressives in particular become more interested in extending equality to minorities, and women, and other excluded groups, and little more suspicious of these old white guys, often from the south, who were crusaders against monopolies. #Quote by Jeffrey Rosen
Monopolies quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#26. Nature hates monopolies and exceptions. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Monopolies quotes by Sam Houston
#27. I have ever been opposed to banks, - opposed to internal improvements by the general government, - opposed to distribution of public lands among the states, - opposed to taking the power from the hands of the people, - opposed to special monopolies, - opposed to a protective tariff, - opposed to a latitudinal construction of the constitution, - opposed to slavery agitation and disunion. This is my democracy. Point to a single act of my public career not in keeping with these principles. #Quote by Sam Houston
Monopolies quotes by Saul Alinsky
#28. Radicals, on the other hand, want to advance from the jungle of laissez-faire capitalism to a world worthy of the name of human civilization. They hope for a future where the means of economic production will be owned by all of the people instead of just a comparative handful. They feel that this minority control of production facilities is injurious to the large masses of people not only because of economic monopolies but because the political power inherent in this form of centralized economy does not augur for an ever expanding democratic way of life. #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Monopolies quotes by E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax
#29. The several sorts of religion in the world are little more than so many spiritual monopolies. #Quote by E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax
Monopolies quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#30. Manufacturing and commercial monopolies owe their origin not to a tendency imminent in a capitalist economy but to governmental interventionist policy directed against free trade and laissez faire. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Monopolies quotes by Henry A. Wallace
#31. We must not tolerate oppressive government or industrial oligarchy in the form of monopolies and cartels. #Quote by Henry A. Wallace
Monopolies quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#32. Away, then, with quacks and organizers! Away with their rings, chains, hooks, and pincers! Away with their artificial systems! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by taxation, and their pious moralizations! #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Monopolies quotes by Christina Stead
#33. Money that is in billions and monopolies isn't money at all, because the people have none, and money is democratic, everyone has to have some or there's none at all. #Quote by Christina Stead
Monopolies quotes by Virginia Postrel
#34. Cable companies aren't bad because they're parts of unwieldy media conglomerates. They're bad because they're monopolies (even where they are no longer legally exclusive) and because the government policies that made them monopolies rewarded lobbying over customer service. #Quote by Virginia Postrel
Monopolies quotes by George Orwell
#35. How could the Rice Ring go on skinning the unfortunate peasant if it hadn't the Government behind it? The British Empire is simply a device for giving trade monopolies to the English - or rather to gangs of Jews and Scotchmen. #Quote by George Orwell
Monopolies quotes by Florence Luscomb
#36. Behind the screen of the ballot, the real holders of power ... are the great industrial and monetary monopolies who own our national economic life. #Quote by Florence Luscomb
Monopolies quotes by John Stossel
#37. As coercive monopolies that spend other people's money taken by force, governments are uniquely unqualified to solve problems. They are riddled by ignorance, perverse incentives, incompetence and self-serving. #Quote by John Stossel
Monopolies quotes by Peter Thiel
#38. Creative monopolies aren't just good for the rest of society; they're powerful engines for making it better. #Quote by Peter Thiel
Monopolies quotes by Bill Moyers
#39. These are the now-endangered markers of a civilized society: legally ordained minimum wages, child labor laws, workers safety and compensation laws, pure foods and safe drugs, Social Security, Medicare and rules that promote competitive markets over monopolies and cartels. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Monopolies quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#40. A man has a right to use a saw, an axe, a plane, separately; may he not combine their uses on the same piece of wood? He has a right to use his knife to cut his meat, a fork to hold it; may a patentee take from him the right to combine their use on the same subject? Such a law, instead of enlarging our conveniences, as was intended, would most fearfully abridge them, and crowd us by monopolies out of the use of the things we have. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Monopolies quotes by Gar Alperovitz
#41. The power of the big fish in general to regroup is hardly restricted to banking. When Standard Oil was broken up in 1911, the immediate effect was to replace a national monopoly with a number of regional monopolies controlled by many of the same Wall Street interests. Ultimately, the regional monopolies regrouped: In 1999 Exxon (formerly Standard Oil Company of New Jersey) and Mobil (formerly Standard Oil Company of New York) reconvened in one of the largest mergers in US history. In 1961 Kyso (formerly Standard Oil of Kentucky) was purchased by Chevron (formerly Standard Oil of California); and in the 1960s and 1970s Sohio (formerly Standard Oil of Ohio) was bought by British Petroleum (BP), which then, in 1998, merged with Amoco (formerly Standard Oil of Indiana).

The tale of AT&T is similar. As the result of an antitrust settlement with the government, on January 1, 1984, AT&T spun off its local operations so as to create seven so-called Baby Bells. But the Baby Bells quickly began to merge and regroup. By 2006 four of the Baby Bells were reunited with their parent company AT&T, and two others (Bell Atlantic and NYNEX) merged to form Verizon.

So the hope that you can make a banking breakup stick (even if it were to be achieved) flies in the face of some pretty daunting experience. Also, note carefully a major political fact: The time when traditional reformers had enough power to make tough banking regulation really work was the time when #Quote by Gar Alperovitz
Monopolies quotes by Benjamin Graham
#42. Here is an all-too-brief summary of Buffett's approach: He looks for what he calls "franchise" companies with strong consumer brands, easily understandable businesses, robust financial health, and near-monopolies in their markets, like H & R Block, Gillette, and the Washington Post Co. Buffett likes to snap up a stock when a scandal, big loss, or other bad news passes over it like a storm cloud - as when he bought Coca-Cola soon after its disastrous rollout of "New Coke" and the market crash of 1987. He also wants to see managers who set and meet realistic goals; build their businesses from within rather than through acquisition; allocate capital wisely; and do not pay themselves hundred-million-dollar jackpots of stock options. Buffett insists on steady and sustainable growth in earnings, so the company will be worth more in the future than it is today. #Quote by Benjamin Graham
Monopolies quotes by George Gilder
#43. The freer an economy is, the more this human diversity of knowledge will be manifested. By contrast, political power originates in top-down processes-governments, monopolies, regulators, and elite institutions-all attempting to quell human diversity and impose order. Thus power always seeks centralization. #Quote by George Gilder
Monopolies quotes by Ronald Reagan
#44. Meanwhile, what about the workers in those state monopolies that are being put up for sale? I am reminded of a technique for employee ownership that has worked well for many U.S. companies. It goes by various names, but the best known is "Employee Stock Ownership Program," or ESOP. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Monopolies quotes by Alan Greenspan
#45. I'm not denying that monopolies are terrible things, but I am denying that it is readily easy to resolve them through legislation of that nature. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Monopolies quotes by Harold Innis
#46. The overwhelming pressure of mechanization evident in the newspaper and the magazine, has led to the creation of vast monopolies of communication. Their entrenched positions involve a continuous, systematic, ruthless destruction of elements of permanence essential to cultural activity. #Quote by Harold Innis
Monopolies quotes by Pope Clement VIII
#47. All the world suffers from the usury of the Jews, their monopolies and deceit. They have brought many unfortunate people into a state of poverty, especially the farmers, working class people and the very poor. Then as now Jews have to be reminded intermittently anew that they were enjoying rights in any country since they left Palestine and the Arabian desert, and subsequently their ethical and moral doctrines as well as their deeds rightly deserve to be exposed to criticism in whatever country they happen to live. #Quote by Pope Clement VIII
Monopolies quotes by Peter Thiel
#48. We protect monopolies with copyright. #Quote by Peter Thiel
Monopolies quotes by Yusuf Hamied
#49. Every country has the right to determine its own laws. And India can't afford monopolies. #Quote by Yusuf Hamied
Monopolies quotes by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
#50. But suppose, for the sake of argument, free competition, without any sort of monopoly, would develop capitalism trade more rapidly. Is it not a fact that the more rapidly trade and capitalism develop, the greater is the concentration of production and capital which gives rise to monopoly? #Quote by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Monopolies quotes by James Madison
#51. That is not a just government where arbitrary restrictions, exemptions, and monopolies deny to part of its citizens that free use of their faculties, and free choice of their occupations. #Quote by James Madison
Monopolies quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#52. The most urgent necessity is, not that the State should teach, but that it should allow education. All monopolies are detestable, but the worst of all is the monopoly of education. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Monopolies quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#53. Governments have monopolies on certain things, like eminent domain and deadly force. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Monopolies quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#54. God has given to men all that is necessary for them to accomplish their destinies. He has provided a social form as well as a human form. And these social organs of humans are so constituted that they will develop themselves harmoniously in the clean air of liberty. Away, then, with the quacks and organizers! Away with their rings, chains, hooks and pincers! Away with their artificial systems! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by taxation, and their pious moralizations!
And, now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Monopolies quotes by Eric S. Raymond
#55. On first blush this looks to be about money, but it is about power. Is power going to go to the information monopolies, or will it go to developers and users?. #Quote by Eric S. Raymond
Monopolies quotes by Louis Thomas McFadden
#56. Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are US government institutions. They are not ... they are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the US for the benefit of themselves and their foreign and domestic swindlers, and rich and predatory money lenders. The sack of the United States by the Fed is the greatest crime in history. Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers, but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will. #Quote by Louis Thomas McFadden
Monopolies quotes by Jo Grimond
#57. The state owned monopolies are among the greatest millstones round the neck of the economy ... Liberals must stress at all times the virtues of the market, not only for efficiency but to enable the widest possible choice ... Much of what Mrs Thatcher and Sir Keith Joseph say and do is in the mainstream of liberal philosophy. #Quote by Jo Grimond
Monopolies quotes by Carlos Fuentes
#58. In a world torn by every kind of fundamentalism - religious, ethnic, nationalist and tribal - we must grant first place to economic fundamentalism, with its religious conviction that the market, left to its own devices, is capable of resolving all our problems. This faith has its own ayatollahs. Its church is neo-liberalism; its creed is profit; its prayers are for monopolies. #Quote by Carlos Fuentes
Monopolies quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#59. This doctrine ['that the condition of man cannot be ameliorated, that what has been must ever be, and that to secure ourselves where we are we must tread with awful reverence in the footsteps of our fathers']is the genuine fruit of the alliance between Church and State, the tenants of which finding themselves but too well in their present condition, oppose all advances which might unmask their usurpations and monopolies of honors, wealth and power, and fear every change as endangering the comforts they now hold. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Monopolies quotes by Marc Levinson
#60. Competition is often conflated with capitalism, but they are not at all the same. Capitalism involves private ownership of the means of production and distribution, but the word implies nothing about the way in which privately owned firms do business. Capitalism is perfectly compatible with a society in which a powerful state doles out favors to private monopolies, protects some enterprises from others, or even sets the prices privately owned firms may charge for their products. Indeed, while capitalists tend to praise the virtues of competition, many of them would just as soon avoid it. #Quote by Marc Levinson
Monopolies quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#61. By a declaration of rights, I mean one which shall stipulate freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of commerce against monopolies, trial by juries in all cases, no suspensions of the habeas corpus, no standing armies. These are fetters against doing evil which no honest government should decline. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Monopolies quotes by Grover Cleveland
#62. As we view the achievements of aggregated capital, we discover the existence of trusts, combinations, and monopolies, while the citizen is struggling far in the rear or is trampled to death beneath an iron heel. Corporations, which should be the carefully restrained creatures of the law and the servants of the people, are fast becoming the people's masters. #Quote by Grover Cleveland
Monopolies quotes by Ian Bremmer
#63. I believe that if you go and ask a chief executive of a Goldman Sachs or a BP, and they answer you honestly ... they want monopolies, they want government subsidies, they want preferences - they're not interested in free markets. #Quote by Ian Bremmer
Monopolies quotes by Grover Cleveland
#64. I cannot help but think it perilous to suffer these lands or the sources of their irrigation to fall into the hands of monopolies, which by such means may exercise lordship over the areas dependent on their treatment for productiveness. #Quote by Grover Cleveland
Monopolies quotes by Frantz Fanon
#65. Capitalist exploitation and cartels and monopolies are the enemies of underdeveloped countries. On the other hand a regime which is completely oriented towards the people as a whole and based on the principle that man is the most precious of all possessions, will allow us to go forward more quickly and more harmoniously, and thus make impossible that caricature of society where all economic and political power is held in the hands of a few who regard the nation as a whole with scorn and contempt. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Monopolies quotes by De Robigne Mortimer Bennett
#66. [The Truth Seeker is] Devoted to: science, morals, free thought, free discussions, liberalism, sexual equality, labor reform, progression, free education and whatever tends to elevate and emancipate the human race.
Opposed to: priestcraft, ecclesiasticism, dogmas, creeds, false theology, superstition, bigotry, ignorance, monopolies, aristocracies, privileged classes, tyranny, oppression, and everything that degrades or burdens mankind mentally or physically. #Quote by De Robigne Mortimer Bennett
