Early in her newest book Break Em Up Zephyr Teachout retells the story of an air hockey seller The seller whose air hockey table was one of the top 3 search results until introduced sponsored ads Coincidentally despite years of sales and popular reviews the product dropped off the search charts with their arrival even the free organic results Potential buyers in the America s largest online market could no longer find the product In a desperate act to regain volume the seller decided to spend 5000 10000 a month on sponsored advertisements As if magic a product that mysteriously dropped off s organic search results found its way back to the top after it bought thousands of dollars of advertisementsZephyr Teachout explainsThe resulting system is the opposite of a competitive market it s a kickback regime sets up an allegedly neutral system and then charges fees to game that system calling those fees advertisements Sellers compete over how much they can pay to get access to consumersThis example speaks to the heart of Break Em Up Teachout argues that large private monopolies are forms of tyranny that destroy our economy and democracy The small air hockey seller is not free to conduct business if they re forced to purchase thousands of dollars of advertisements from the only online market that matters According to Teachout the only way to combat the tyranny is to target the heart of the issue the business model itselfZephyr Teachout is one of the most important figures within the modern progressive movement She s a lawyer law professor author and multiple time candidate for public office Unlike a lot of her contemporaries her arguments and solutions aren t driven solely from a moral standpoint Instead she provides a moral vision with a fierce defense of competitive markets and cost savings something every business minded person should hold dear to their heart Take the popular progressive position of Medicare universal health care Zephyr supports it but wants to move past the discussion of universal coverage and into the structural issues driving health care cost private monopoliesHere s the rub driving down prices is much harder when the government is negotiating with a powerful monopoly than when it is negotiating in a competitive market Healthcare expert Phillip Longman has written several persuasive articles about consolidation in the drug market and the healthcare industry generally and the risk that this consolidation poses to nationalizing plans If a single payer plan was enacted without additionally addressing the monopoly problem he argues government could end up effectively subsidizing big pharma and big hospitals and keep paying enormously high prices Those costs would shift back to the public in the form of taxesSingle payer care is necessary for humane reasons and for the extraordinary reduction in administrative costs But why not demand both single payer and breaking up drug monopoliesBasically Zephyr Teachout has the courage and the moral conviction of Ralph Nader but the vision to see the structural issues driving our society Break Em Up is structured into two parts The first argues that private monopolies have destroyed a lot of what we consider society The second is what to do about it One of my favorite things about this book is how she frames business taxes The earlier 5000 to 10000 advertising fee that the small business pays every month isn t advertising It s a private tax imposed by in order to access the market Unlike public taxes which go to fund roads and schools this goes straight into the pocket of Jeff Bezos who is current worth around 200 billionShe walks us through a variety of industries and the monopolies that impose private destructive taxes on each Tyson and Farming Facebook and Journalism and Retail The stats are particularly damning in farming In 1985 farmers were paid about 40 cents for every dollar Americans spent on food Today that number is down to 15 cents The money has shifted from small producers to large manufacturers and retailersThe first part of the book is well written but unless you re new to the anti monopoly thought it isn t particularly groundbreaking In my opinion The Curse of Bigness by Tim Wu who she ran for governor with and Matt Stoller s Goliath do a little bit better job explaining the evolution history and impact of the rise of private monopolies Where Break Em Up really shines is in the second part what to do about itI m generally partial to the plight of consumer products companies this isn t to say they re blameless but most are effectively powerless against large retailers The reason for this is uite simple we uit enforcing free trade laws For most CPG companies two retailers Walmart and Kroger constitute 30 35% of sales If one of them says an item s price needs to be lowered it s going to get lowered and the manufacturer is going to take the margin bite They simply can t risk getting their item take out of the store The only way they re able to negotiate is if they have a large portfolio either raising prices elsewhere or making it up in overall volume Either way the underlying structure pushes companies towards consolidation like the mega merger of Kraft Heinz Break Em Up is one of the first books that I ve read that gives concrete framework to stop the structure from happening 1 Open competitive markets working together with publicly provided services and neutral infrastructure are necessary for economic liberty There is no one size fits all answer to every industry but unregulated private monopoly poses a uniue threat Private corporations with too much power raise prices for consumers depress wages for workers choke off democracy and regulate all of us 2 To preserve rough economic and political euality we should make it easier to organize people and harder to organize capital It should be as easy to unionize or to create a cooperative as it is hard to merge goliaths 3 It s better to err on the side of decentralized private power Democratic governance is messy and will lead to mistakes but corporate government will lead to tyrannyTo me some of her most powerful writing is when analyzes Michael Sandel s What Money Can t Buy a book that argues the typical progressive line on capitalism that it s bad and needs to change for moral reasons Her response is phenomenal and I think shows a viable path forward to popularizing progressive policies across the ideological spectrumSandel s approach is dangerous because it closes down an arena of moral action and redirects activism away from breaking up big corporations It makes us ignore market structure problems If we treat markets as a kind of necessary infectious disease that one must cordon off instead of institutions that can be wonderful or corrupt depending on how they are structured we stop trying to fix them And while a few people think the state should make shoes and grow carrots most people including myself imagine most of economic life happening through private exchangeZephyr s solution isn t to regulate out markets The solution is to regulate markets in a way that works for people She then provides a framework that isn t just theory but practical and provenAll in all Break Em Up is a nice addition to the modern anti trust movement by one of its most important practitioners This review originally appeared on my website Death Goddess Dance The Mythos War #3 resulting in a greater concentration of wealth and power than we've seen since the Gilded Age They are

Fantastic book I almost feel obligated to stay abreast of popular books on economics especially relating to ineuality and market concentration and I find myself at times dragging my way through similar grab bag collections of anecdotes and industry by industry woes Not so in this caseThis book is tightly thought out and well edited It focuses on power in a very practical negotiating sense as opposed to a socialist framework It is very timely and takes on the difficult topics of social media acknowledging that the social media monopolies act in their own self interests resulting in decisions which are from society s viewpoint arbitrary and perniciousIt addresses shallow satisfactions and limited utility of cancel culture arguing that real change reuires real intervention trust busting just as it always was I took a college course in anti trust law in the 1970s back when we as a society still believed in such things and I never cease to marvel at the market concentrations that we accept today as a matter of course The standard has shifted to consumer prices as long as the monopolist offers lower prices eg Facebook we turn a blind eye to the other harms such concentrations cause Highly recommend
