Court orders disintegration of High-Tech Leader

The most pernicious monopoly in America – the federal government – has moved one step closer toward the disintegration of the high tech economy. Yesterday, Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson ordered a break up of the Microsoft Corporation. Jackson wrote that he is ready to put “to the test” the government’s plan to organize the software market. Jackson, the Department of Justice, and each of the state attorneys general involved don’t make the grade. Government control of the software market will harm consumers.

Software Landing

BY Mike Cleary

Consumers won't see any price changes immediately from the breakup of Microsoft, but whether the split eventually will bring higher or lower prices is debatable. U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson's order yesterday to break the software giant into two companies - one for its applications, like the popular Microsoft Word and Office programs and Internet Explorer, and the other for its operating systems like Windows and Microsoft NT - divided industry observers on what it means for consumers.

Capitol Comment 282 - The Big Sugar Bailout: A Bittersweet Reminder of the Federal Legacy of Everglades Destruction

On May 11, 2000, in one of the most blatant cases of corporate welfare to come down the road in recent years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that its Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) planned to buy and store 150,000 tons of surplus sugar. This most recent bailout of the heavily subsidized U.S. sugar industry involves spending $60 million in taxpayer funds to purchase the surplus. Good weather, expanded plantings, improved productivity, and more imports have brought the domestic price of sugar down 25 percent over the last year.

Microsoft Breakup Questioned

BY Paul Davidson

The attorney general of North Carolina, one of the states suing Microsoft for antitrust violations, voiced doubts about the government's proposal to break up the company in an interview published Sunday. Meanwhile, prosecutors in court papers Monday blasted most of Microsoft's suggested changes to the breakup proposal, saying they would "frustrate and undermine" the plan. A federal judge is expected to accept the plan within days, after ruling in April that Microsoft used its Windows software monopoly to stifle competition.
