The United States has a variety of regulations to address the economic harm resulting from monopoly power in an industry. This includes the Sherman Act of 1890, the Clayton Act of 1914, and the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. These acts were aimed at restricting the formation of cartels and monopolies to protect consumers and ensure competition. The article The Oligopoly Problem argued that oligopolies fall through the cracks of these regulations and leave consumers unprotected from harmful business practices where industries are highly concentrated. Read the article and respond to the following in your initial post: What are examples of firms in an oligopolistic market that abuse their power? Explain how they abuse their power and describe the impact on consumers. Do you agree with the author’s feelings about increased government oversight of such industries?

Neuroprivacy and 2) New Research of the Nervous System Part 1) Due to recent advancements in our ability to measure the electrical activity of the brain, "neuroprivacy" has become an ethical buzzword for neuroscientists. What is neuroprivacy? How close are we to really knowing what another person is thinking? How much should the government regulate the research that might lead to neuroprivacy concerns? Given that medical personnel will remove articles of clothing from the outside of a person without regard for privacy in a medical emergency, how should neuroprivacy be handled in a medical emergency? Should commercial companies have access to your neural records for marketing purposes, or probation officers or judges in court have access for determination of flight risk or criminal intent, or insurance companies have access for determining your probability for engaging in risky behaviors? Is this different or should it be different than when insurance companies charge different rates based on the weight of an individual?

Neuroprivacy and 2) New Research of the Nervous System
Part 1)
Due to recent advancements in our ability to measure the electrical activity of the brain, “neuroprivacy” has become an ethical buzzword for neuroscientists. What is
neuroprivacy? How close are we to really knowing what another person is thinking? How much should the government regulate the research that might lead to neuroprivacy
concerns? Given that medical personnel will remove articles of clothing from the outside of a person without regard for privacy in a medical emergency, how should
neuroprivacy be handled in a medical emergency? Should commercial companies have access to your neural records for marketing purposes, or probation officers or judges
in court have access for determination of flight risk or criminal intent, or insurance companies have access for determining your probability for engaging in risky
behaviors? Is this different or should it be different than when insurance companies charge different rates based on the weight of an individual? Be sure to answer
