John Oliver on monopolies, anti-trust and the death of real competitive markets

Lax anti-trust enforcement is destroying American democracy, growth and equality; it laid waste to minority-owned small businesses and "fleeced" the middle class, creating its own parallel "justice" system and laying waste to whole industries, with the complicity of the Democratic party (and the $1,000/hour expert "consulting" by superstar economists), and there's no end in sight, from Yahoo to Whole Foods.

In an excellent new segment, John Oliver is at his incandescent best, explaining the ways that we are all hurt by monopoly capitalism and mega-corporations that don't have to compete in the market. From aviation to aviator shades, Oliver's explainer is a must-watch.
