Competition is Killing Us

How Big Business is Harming Our Society and Planet - and What To Do About It




Why we need to break up big business and how it would make the world a better place.

We live in the age of big companies where multi-billion and trillion dollar mammoths dominate the market and prioritise shareholder profits over all else.

This leads to extreme wealth inequality, inhumane conditions for workers and relentless pressure on the environment. Yet no government or organisation has the power to regulate these companies and hold them to account.

In Competition is Killing Us, lawyer and campaigner Michelle Meagher, establishes a new framework to control capitalism, presenting a fair and comprehensive approach to competition law that limits unfair mergers, enforces accountability and redistributes power through stakeholder governance. By debunking six myths about the free market, Meagher shows how corporate capitalism concentrates power at the cost of people and planet, and shares a new vision for anti-trust for the 21st century.

It's time capitalism worked for the many and not just the few.
