Monopoly is not just a board game people play for fun, monopolies became powerful and affected the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Monopolies are the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service. Basically, monopolies are firms that have a lot of market power. They greatly controlled industries and played a role in the government, such as helping president President Benjamin Harrison. Monopolies dominated their own industries and were huge for the industrial period in the United States.
The Gilded Age was a time of good and bad economic growth. In America during post civil war times, years 1870 to 1900, the nation was prospering on the surface, but was corrupt underneath; large businesses took control of the economy, changed society, and influenced politics nefariously. By the end of the nineteenth century, monopolies and trusts exercised a significant degree of control over key aspects of the American economy. Carnegie used vertical integration to take over the steel industry. He then set up a mega trust with Rockefeller, who was in the gas and oil industry, JP Morgan, who was a banker, and Vanderbilt, who was high up in the railroad industry.
“If we will not endure a king as a political power, we should not endure a king over the production, transportation and sale of any the necessaries of life” for stated, “John Sherman”. John D. Rockefeller, once the wealthiest man in the world, achieved a monopoly of the petroleum industry. John Sherman established the silver and antitrust bills, prohibiting powerful monopolies. The Sherman Antitrust Act, secures trade and commerce opposed to unlawful constraints. In 1890, a monopoly of the petroleum industry led to the Sherman Antitrust Act causing limits to the power of U.S corporations.
In the mid to late 1800's, oil was used for lamps, but as the years evolved, a man by the name John D. Rockefeller, had saved his money long enough to start his own oil business. But as the company became popular, it also became a trust, where less competition couldn't bypass the prices or substitute the popular product of oil. A monopolistic market is a product company that has raised price levels high, and only comes from one business. Therefore the consumer is forced to only purchase the product from that business.
I have discovered local politics have the most impact on our lives and the rules by which we live. This year the state of Ohio has come up with two issues. They are Issue 2 and Issue 3. The purpose of Issue 2 as stated by the Ohio government’s website is, “to prohibit any individual or entity from proposing a constitutional amendment that would grant a monopoly, oligopoly, or cartel, specify or determine a tax rate, or confer a commercial interest, right, or license that is not available to similarly situated people or nonpublic agencies.” Along with that matter, as stated by the Ohio government’s website, “Issue 3 legalizes marijuana for medicinal and personal use in Ohio.
Mark Twain, one of the most memorable American writers of the 19th century, coined the term “The Gilded Age” to describe the period from 1870 to 1900. This term was derived from the deceiving facade this era wore—the glamorous, glistening surface. This mask was only a thin layer, coating the various shades of corruption pervading beneath.11 The tranquil beauty of fine arts provided an outlet for people to escape from the suffocating grandiose nature of a tainted society ruined by the age of monopolies and corruption. During the momentous Gilded Age, a time period of rapid economic growth which generated vast wealth, new products and technologies were created that improved middle-class quality of life.
The period from 1865 to 1900 was characterized by an astronomical boom in industry and manufacturing, economic growth for the rich, financial turmoil for the poor, and political corruption. As a result, the era has been named “The Gilded Age.” Just as something gilded is gold on the outside but worthless metal on the inside, these years seemed prosperous from an outside perspective, when in reality, the wealth gap was increasing at an alarming rate and big business had power over government officials. As a result of this, a lot of federal legislation was influenced by monopolies and often catered to the desires of businessmen. Since regulation of certain business practices would cause these trusts to lose money, Congress shied away from regulating
In the early 1900’s, the United States’ economy was dominated by monopolies. Theodore Roosevelt, the president at that time, earned the nickname “trust buster”; he made it his mission to prosecute the monopolies of the time; implementing the “square deal”. Theodore Roosevelt went after the Northern Securities Company, formed by J.P. Morgan, J. Hill, and E.H. Harriman. In an era of technological advances and milestones, the formation of new monopolies is a new reality.

Where one of the major problems there was poverty people did everything they could to earn any money possible so that they can sustain their family, and my family was one of them.

The type of market my paper is concentrating on is known as a monopolistic competition market. The first characteristic that differentiate a monopolistic competition market from the other 3 markets is that in a monopolistic competition, there are many sellers which would lead to competition between the firms to sell their products. The second characteristic is that monopolistic firms are relatively small, which can result in either new firms to enter the industry or firms that are existing to exit the market. The third characteristic is that the firms in the monopolistic market sell products that are similar but are slightly different compared to other firms in the same market. The last characteristic is that the firms in a monopolistic market
