"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."
