Yep. And the enemies had their private data disclosed to the friends.

To: null and void

“Crony capitalism” takes on a whole new depth of meaning. Not merely constraint of trade, but of a de facto creation of a trust made up of an oligarchy of a few companies with unfair advantage over their competitors. Not only cash, but a lot of “insider” information that while not evidence of wrongdoing, is still a signpost in finding the vulnerabilities and weakness in the rival’s business model.

While business may be ruthless in its competition, still, why were the “trustbusters” so adamant in breaking industrial giants like Standard Oil and eventually Bell Telephone, and will today do nothing about this kind of predatory business practices?

Because the “trustbusters” have taken sides in industrial and business concerns, and it is to form a deliberately lopsided advantage for the favored side.
