DailyDirt: Monopoly Isn't Just Some Game You Can Play...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've talked about monopolies of various kinds around here before, because monopolies are oftentimes fascinating examples of markets not quite doing what most folks think markets should do. Monopoly issues are also not as black-and-white as they're made out to be in the news, and there are some intriguing (unanswered) questions about how to properly regulate monopolies -- and numerous examples of unintended consequences of poor regulation. Here are just a few more stories on monopolies that you might have come across. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!)

    PEANUT BUTTER BUTTER FILLED PRETZELS

    I am the creator/innovator/ of the PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL (1983) 100% DOCUMENTED CONAGRA BRANDS/ AND MAXIM are now aware! GOOGLE BRUCEGUTTERMAN also BRUCEGUTTERMANPEANUTBUTTER. This MARCH,2014, will be the 31 year anniversary of the ORIGINAL PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL, NUTTER NUGGETS,owned by my other company,SNACKS-R-SPECIALTY. The "KEY", when you read, holds the clue to its ORIGIN/CREATION/INVENTION/INNOVATION. MAXIM is unable to provide ONE MOLECULE of EVIDENCE/DOCUMENTATION to the PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL. That is why CONAGRA BRANDS,who knows of my CONNECTION/CONTRIBUTION/CREATION OF the P.B.FILLED PRETZELS ORIGIN refers to MAXIMS FALSE PROCLAMATION as BASELESS and does not wish to make any further statement at this time. ( CONAGRA'S STATEMENT as of FEB.24,2014.

    Nothing like a mostly incoherent caps lock-filled post from a user named "nutter..." to boost your credibility and claim cause.

    It is still the truth. Just watch in the coming weeks/months when MAXIM has to disclose proclamations of his connection to its origin. He has no proof!
