Praxeology – Monopoly

The monopoly problem mankind has to face today is not an outgrowth of the operation of the market economy. It is a product of purposive action on the part of governments. It is not one of the evils inherent in capitalism as the demagogues trumpet.“- Ludwig von Mises, Human Action

purposive- Having, serving, or done with a purpose.
