The following was originally aired on PI Inquisitive Eye Internet TV Channel.

Antitrust expert Evan Stewart and Alan Greenspan share the same Laissez-faire tendencies that is undermining both public trust and ultimately the economy.  At least that was my point of view in this particular PI Inquisitive Eye Soundbite.

In what was at the time the latest example of poor corporate citizenry from the monolithic chip maker in which it was revealed through an announcement that the FTC was suing Intel as it relates to the future of the graphics processor market, the FTC complaint includes allegations that Intel:

  • Cut off rivals’ access to the marketplace;
  • Deprived consumers of choice and innovation;
  • Was anti-competitive for a decade as it moved to shore up its monopoly;
  • And now is working to choke off rivals in graphics chips.

I will leave it to you to access and review at your leisure the FTC complaint against Intel, however I would invite you to tune into this brief overview of yet another case of corporate avarice in the business world.
