"Monopoly raises two classes of problems for a free society. First, the 
existence of monopoly means a limitation on voluntary exchange through a 
reduction in the alternatives available to individuals. Second, the existence 
of monopoly raises the issue of âsocial responsibilityâ, as it has come to be 
called, of the monopolist."
