Matt Stoller has the Substack article The Secret Plot To Unleash Corporate Power.
There aren’t that many actual conspiracies in politics, but this is a real one. In 1980, influential thinkers advising the incoming Reagan administration were trying to figure out how to repeal antitrust laws and unleash unfettered monopoly power. They realized that repealing the law outright would be unpopular, and that Congress wouldn’t like it. So they decided to repeal the antitrust laws, de facto, by doing it quietly through administrative action.
I keep trying to make people aware of this. Now Matt Stoller has assembled a nice article that does the job.
