Definitions Of Monopoly
A Clear-cut definition of monopoly at the outset of this treatise is most desirable. It is with apologies that the author must confess that such a definition is difficult to find. A description of points of agreeement between various authorities who would define monopoly is offered. A definition of monopoly who would define monopoly is offred.
A definition of monopoly today does bear some resemblance to its original meeting. The word monopoly is traced through the greek nouns and to the two greek words (alone) and (to sell). In English common law the term was applied to legal grant or charter, a patent from the king, which conferred an exclusive privilege of trade or some kind or in some region.
