Here's a sampling of editorial opinion from around the state: August 12 Las Cruces Sun News, on student credit card debt: It's been a couple of years since Tom Udall was New Mexico attorney general, but he hasn't lost his interest in consumer issues. Udall, now a Democratic New Mexico congressman from the 3rd congressional district in the northern part of the state, has put into the political spotlight an issue that is most appropriate as another school year begins: college students who get in trouble from credit-card debt.

A day-and-a-half was devoted to panel presentations and the last half-day consisted of roundtable discussion.

Jean Carnahan, D-Mo., Dorgan said he would accept her amendment excluding the TWA deal from the proposed two-year ban on large airline mergers.

Collusive Behavior

BY Frank N. Wilner

Captive shippers frustrated with railroad market power should consider filing antitrust suits that could net them triple the amount of their proven damages, said Glenn Scammel, Republican chief counsel to the House Railroad Subcommittee. But shipper attorneys said the evidentiary burden could be too difficult and that declaring the equivalent of nuclear war against a sole supplier may not be a wise tactic.

Issue Analysis 117 - Economic Deregulation and Re-regulation: Benefits and Threats

Economic deregulation in the airline, railroad, and telecommunications industries has generated tremendous benefits for consumers. In all three industries, deregulation has led to price reductions of at least 20 percent, and likely much more. Service quality has also improved dramatically compared to what the quality of service would have been under continue deregulation.

Antitrust On and Off Screen

BY Jason Thomas

It was by coincidence that MGM's "Antitrust" debuted the same day the Justice Department and 19 states' attorneys general continued their own antitrust production against Microsoft. Both offerings depicted monopoly power and unchecked aggression. Unfortunately, both the government's floundering case and MGM's box-office dud are filled with so much inanity that neither can be taken seriously.

"What we want is this special unit to look at remedies and to make sure they're actually being implemented," he said in a speech at the European Parliament in Brussels.
