Editorial This article is an answer to "Competition Is Not Good" by Kroc and reading it wouldn't be comfortable without switching to and from the original article. I wrote it just because I do strongly disagree with Kroc and I believe I can prove that he is not as close to truth as it may seem from the first glance.

lol, yeah this is really interesting seeing this article up when I got up. I really didn't agree with kroc's article, but I saw where he was coming from.

From what it looks like you are coming from the more fragmentation there are the best. Like 100 different silver wear companies helps beat down prices, and gives consumers options, while you give the example if there are 2 to 3(still better then nothing) that its just an oligopoly. Which isnt really competition and does set up a sort of lack of it.

The only time I believe that competition is kinda bad, is when there are a million power companies out there, and a million water companies. That needs to be regulated more, and I mean government control, so people cant take advantage of the monopoly on the market.
