Legal Prices of flat panels have been dropping quite steadily ever since they first came to market, but apparently, they could've dropped a whole lot lower if it wasn't for those pesky flat panel manufacturers. Three flat panel makers, LG Display, Sharp, and Chunghwa Picture Tubes (tubes...?) have pleaded guilty to engaging in price fixing schemes to the US Department of Justice, and agreed to a shared USD 585 million fine.

The important question if anybody says "it works" is always "to whom"?
I.e., cui bono?

anything else is to unfriendly to the US economy, and their big corps...


It's the FIRE sector that rules the world, and we have to become aware of it and destroy that rule.
