Regulations. The 2-for-1 is so vague, it’s a concern. My concern? Reduction of anti-trust regulations. As it stands, the FTC has clearly been ignoring/avoiding pursuing antitrust against [this website] and other online sites. Will the 45th approve giant mergers that stifle competition? Or will he stick to the populist rhetoric of “break up the monopolies to encourage competition?” My gut says that he’ll quietly allow very large mergers without much fuss and encourage non-interference by the FTC, much like predecessors over the past few decades. So, it’s a “wait and see” at this point with this. So, watch carefully.
