DOJ says Apple responsible for setting up, executing e-book price fixing - Page 3

post #81 of 85
TR is famous for Trust Busting and leveling the playing field where it was proven factually correct that level rules of engagement is the only way any sense of capitalism can develop. If anyone thinks laissez-faire capitalism works then they are just plain ignorant minds of world history.

Self-regulation is a pipe-dream. Nothing but oligarchs surface in such deluded fantasies.

This case is unbelievably dumb. It's so dumb, apparently the only way for the DOJ to save face is to hope they win it, which would make it officially not dumb even if it is actually dumb.

All the way to the gulags, in the Soviet Socialist United States of America, where Government regulation controls the market.

 

You WISH. Maybe if it did you wouldn't have had millions of people suddenly lose their homes or a world-wide economic upheaval while unscrupulous, unethical traders took home literally billions in bonuses.

So the DoJ is acting like that Dutch boy with his finger in the hole in a dyke, grandstanding on the railroading of Apple except the dyke has gone and the US is awash in a sea of pain.

I hardly think a couple of bucks added to the cost of some ebooks is a high priority to the homeless.

Might sell one of my houses here and buy a few in the US, the market won't be dead forever.
