About our work
Monopolies have taken control of our economies and entrepreneurs are the victim of monopolies predatory practices. It is time to re-imagine localized economies for the benefit of all. Instead of our economic system benefiting only the behemoth conglomerates, our policies and practices should benefit the common good. Local business by its very nature is the antidote to monopoly power.
This is why AMIBA has committed to join the effort to reign in monopolies and give our local businesses a fair chance. There is a role for each of us. We encourage you to get involved. Start by reading The Big Deal of Antitrust Laws for Small Businesses. This short paper explains why our work is so important to you and your community.
