Description:

The paper explains that anti-trust laws protect not only the small competitors from being taken out of business by predatory pricing attempts by the big league businesses, but also protects the consumer by protecting the free trade of competition in the market place. The paper examines the issue of below cost selling of products but notes the difficulty of proving that this is for the purpose of driving competition out of business. The paper discusses how small businesses must find other ways to compete and find their niche market in whatever field they are selling products and services.
