Seven dollars?! The subway company keeps boosting the prices!
Well, that's because the subway company owns all of the local transportation. It's a monopoly.
That's not fair! Shouldn't that be illegal?
A monopoly is when one company or provider controls a majority of a certain market.
Those little... gahhh!!!
It is, actually. It was made illegal in 1890 by the Sherman Act. You might know it as the Anti-Sherman Trust Act. Specifically, it prohibited mergers between companies if the newly formed company held too big of a share in the market. Implementing this law was necessary to let companies compete fairly. Unfortunately, this is the only subway in town, so until a competitor comes in, they will continue to monopolize the market.
