itional view of big business in America has been one of efficiency, innovation, and constraint by the countervailing powers of big labor and big government. Adams (Economics, Michigan State Univ.) and Brock (Economics, Miami Univ., Ohio) take issue with this view: through the analysis of numerous case studies, they expose big business as inefficient, uncompetitive, and in collusion with labor and government. The consumer is the big loser. The solution Adams and Brock offer is vigorous antitrust enforcement in the public interest; smaller indeed may be better. The authors are at their best when they illuminate the gap between economic theory and actual performance. Recommended for most libraries. Richard C.
