THE FORMATION AND CONTROL OF TRUSTS In the year 1898 the new companies formed in the United States for purposes of industrial consolidation had an aggregate capital of over nine hundred million dollars. When this fact first transpired, it was regarded as surprising. Now it has become commonplace. For in the earlier half of 1899, according to the careful estimate of the Financial Chronicle, the capital of the new companies of this character was three thousand one hundred million dollars, or more than three tunes that of the whole year preceding.1 It is hard at once to appreciate the magnitude of these figures.

These are the questions which must be asked and answered. 1 $1,981,000,000 common stock, $1,041,000,000 preferredstock, and 8120,000,000 bonds. It is safe to say at the outset that this movement is not...
