Dominated by few men

“It has been brought to such a high degree of concentration that it is dominated by few men. The big packers, so called, stand  between hundreds of thousands of producers on one hand and millions of consumers on the other. They have their fingers on  the pulse of both the producing and consuming markets and are in such a position of strategic advantage they have  unrestrained power to manipulate both markets to their own advantage and to the disadvantage of over 99 percent of the  people of the country.  Such power is too great, Mr. President to repose in the hands of any men.”
-These words were spoken on the floor of the U.S. Senate by Wyoming Senator John Kendrick in 1921
