Problem

Indiscriminate anti-trust prosecution

Nature:
A number of governments accept a theory that if a company enjoys a monopoly market position it is intrinsically evil, and its operations tend to limit output while maintaining artificially high prices. In capitalist countries anti-trust or anti-monopoly legislation and regulation is enforced in an arbitrary manner, while in socialist and communist countries there is no restraint on government owned monopoly enterprises or on their competition in international trade.
