The industrial development of the united States has been accompanied by attempts to restrain the free play of competition through modern trust movements. The growing concentration of industry added a new importance to the law on restraint of trade, and considerable statutory regulation of trusts were attempted.

This discourse deals with the organization of business enterprises in the United states, their practices in respect to competition, and the Statutory regulations of trusts prior to 1920. It does not embrace government regulation of all industries as such, but is limited to federal regulation through statutory enactments as an outgrowth of the necessity to curb industrial activities, competition and combination.
