Reasons To Disagree

I am against this since it is not clear that being "large" is by itself anti competitive. A firm which is a natural monopoly in a contestable market is, I assume, "large" but it does not have market power and thus is not anti competitive.

no prices just need to be compared and monitored by trade commission. competitors encouraged. i would prefer a NZ owned monopoly to a market of overseas companies anyday! why is it the national party doesnt support nationalism of this form? because it doesnt work for all new zealanders that why

Success should not be considered an illness

I have to disagree on principle. But then I look at Telecom, Wee Willie Gates, Air New Zealand and heaps of others and begin to wonder. It seems to me that size does have drawbacks. I do wonder if businesses would, perhaps, be more "user friendly" if they weren't constantly being interfered with and bled white by gummint.

Large companies foster socialism due to Parkinson's law of apathy, but let's not outlaw phenomenal success just yet!

Don't support monopolies you don't like. Don't support laws and investors that provide monopolies with power. Laws to divide a monopoly only creates several new ones.

Yes lets legislate against being successful, after all it wouldn't do for people to make their lot better for themselves now would it

Reasons To Agree

Large companies are not dynamic, they are mainly predatory. They grow by aquiring their competetors, load them with debt and announce it as an achievement.

Looks like most people have forgotten Adam Smith's number one point on economics - more players = more competition. I have no problem with companies that have become succesful on their own efforts, but most big companies have simply bought their competitors. Look at the supermarket sector, two companies for the whole of NZ??

There will be a need to draw a line on what 'large' means

Reasons for Remain Neutral

I'd agree if you left out the word "greater".
