A History of American Monopolists: Lessons Not Easily Learned

Carl W. Hittinger : The Legal Intelligencer : September 08, 2014

As the story goes, in 1902, President Teddy Roosevelt, wanting to make his mark on the presidency as a real deal "trust buster," took aim at Wall Street by going after financial titan J.P. Morgan. Working with his then-attorney general, Pennsylvanian Philander Knox, Roosevelt decided to file an antitrust suit against the Northern Securities Co., a Morgan-controlled trust. The lawsuit under the new Sherman Act accused the holding company of gaining monopoly power through controlling stock acquisitions over two competing railroad companies for the purpose of illegally restraining trade. Wall Street was appalled. Morgan was shocked, claiming that his lawyers had carefully organized the holding company with the new antitrust laws in mind. Moreover, Morgan was dismayed that the president had not even tried to work things out with him before firing off the lawsuit and accusing Morgan of being an illegal monopolist. Morgan reacted by jumping on a train to Washington with a phalanx of politicos to meet with Roosevelt and Knox to straighten things out. Or so he thought he could, as he usually always did with other rivals. However, the White House meeting went from bad to worse.
