520    "American markets, once a model for the world, are giving 
       up on competition. Thomas Philippon blames the unchecked 
       efforts of corporate lobbyists. Instead of earning profits
       by investing and innovating, powerful firms use political 
       pressure to secure their advantages. The result is less 
       efficient markets, leading to higher prices and lower 
       wages"--|cProvided by publisher.
