Royal Mail Sell Off: Rip Off
Quote from the Father of Modern Economics, Adam Smith "A monopoly granted either to an individual or to a trading company has
the same effect as a secret in trade or manufactures. The monopolists,
by keeping the market constantly understocked, by never fully supplying
the effectual demand, sell their commodities much above the natural
price, and raise their emoluments, whether they consist in wages or
profit, greatly above their natural rate."
