Resolving Trusts

Woodrow Wilson established the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. It enabled the commission to watch any industries that were involved in any interstate commerce. This act was put in place to end monopolies in the different industries. The president then issued the Clayton Anti-Trust Act of 1914 which was meant to prevent non-competitive practices in America. These acts helped Wilson control the trusts in the nation and limit the monopolies. This would defeat the "Monopoly Monster" that led big business that placed a monopoly on the market.
