Nope. Anti-dog prevented one company from taking over another in the same or a related industry. Anti-dog is why Rearden had to cancel his option on and intended purpose of buying Fleming's copper property.
This piece of crap is more along the lines of the "Railroad Unification Bill", except that it doesn't have the goobermint setting **prices** directly, only profits. "Only" profits. As if there's any significant distinction over the medium term, eh? Sheesh.
