Seeds Of Life: Hybrids and the Emergence of Seed Monopolies For more Stories, Food News, and Cooking Fresh videos, visit Throughout much of agriculture, a remarkable span of 10000 years, farmers were largely the stewards of the land and the crops that they grew. Seeds collected from one year's harvest were selected, stored, and used again for successive growing seasons. As Frank Morton, an organic seed breeder explains in this segment of the Seeds Of Life series, the role of the farmer at the center of agriculture began to change with the advent of hybrid seed development beginning with hybrid varieties of corn in the 1930′s.

Tim Tyler: Biological monopolies A monopolising species arises when a species competitively excludes other species from a given niche. This can happen if its members are sufficiently powerful and invasive. A ***ual species that does this on a sufficiently large scale can face competition mainly from other members of its own species. The resulting dynamics resemble those of monopolies in economic systems.

The State Creates Monopolies You were probably taught that a benevolent state is the only that prevents monopolies, but in fact the very opposite is true; monopolies can only exist when the government uses force to protect them.

Francis Thicke - Corporate Agriculture Monopolies Francis Thicke talks about a growing problem in today's agriculture that reduces profits returned to farmers. It's the increasing concentration of market power in the hands of a few corporations. Economists tell us that when four corporations control 40 percent or more of a market, that market loses its competitive nature and begins to take on the characteristics of a monopoly. As of 2007, four corporations control 84 percent of the beef packer market; four corporations control 66 percent of the pork packer market; four corporations control 59 percent of the broiler market. The turkey, flour milling, seed, and other agricultural markets are similarly concentrated.
RT News: Media Monopolies Manipulating the Masses Originally uploaded on RTAmerica Jan 28th 2011 Several huge corporations own networks and newspapers in the US. How much of the content do they control? RT's Anastasia Churkina reports. "We are grateful to the Washington Post, New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respect their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a WORLD GOVERNMENT. The supranational sovereignty of an INTELLECTUAL ELITE and WORLD BANKERS is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries." - David Rockefeller Watch Zeitgeist Moving Forward

DYLAN RATIGAN ON CORP. MONOPOLIES AND THE REASON WHY REGULATIONS ARE IMPORTANT Have you ever heard the term " Out of site out of mind " ? That's how allot of these companies work .They work to undermine competition and new innovation through sabotage, so they can put a strangle hold on consumers . I've heard allot of Republicans say, " That is the market . It will correct itself " . That's not necessarily true . As a matter of fact this practice is so rampant, you'll never know what kind of new innovations could have come to market if not for these unregulated monopolies ? That's why we have anti-trust laws . That's what is happening with net neutrality . It's a principle that proposes no restrictions by Internet service providers and governments on content, sites, platforms, the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and the modes of communication allowed . You would think most Republicans would be for this right ? But no, they have taken the corporations side . Opponents of net neutrality characterize its regulations as "a solution in search of a problem", arguing that broadband service providers have no plans to block content or degrade network performance (They already have ) . However, proponents claim that telecom companies seek to impose a tiered service model in order to control the pipeline and thereby remove competition, create artificial scarcity, and oblige subscribers to buy their otherwise uncompetitive services. Many believe net neutrality to be primarily important as a preservation of current freedoms. Anyways Dylan Ratigan speaks ...

Silly Arguments for the State: Monopolies need to be combated by a Monopoly. This is a common argument for the existence of the state. Despite its good intentions and the undesirability of coercive monopolies for many reasons, institutionalizing a coercive monopoly is not a consistent or effective solution to the dangers posed by monopolistic behavior. Other people have done videos on topics related to this, but I wanted to give a real quick logical ***ysis of this without getting into rights theories or how a free market for state-monopolized services would/could work.

Law on monopolies The government will establish a monopolies authority to check companies that abuse their dominant position in the market and engage in unfair trade practices. The authority is expected before July this year when the revised competition act of 2010 comes into force. While a monopolies commission currently exists under treasury, the same has been accused of being ineffective and outdated as it has failed to conclusively deal with many complains coming up as companies seek to outdo each other in the market.

Lynn's Cornered: This book should be read by the Minister for Enterprise and Employment, and by the EU Competition Commissioner, so that they can draw up new and transparent guidelines for competition policy that will ensure ...

Nataline Sarkisyan's Parents Come Fact-to-Face With Former CIGNA Executive Wendell Potter When Nataline Sarkisyan was denied the liver transplant her doctor thought could save her life, her mother and father brought her fight to the doorsteps of CIGNA insurance. By her side was American SiCKO Donna Smith and the California Nurses Association. The media picked up on the story which quickly became a public relations nightmare for CIGNA because of the real nightmare the Sarkisyan family was living. With no other choice, CIGNA finally approved Nataline's liver transplant but it was too late. Nataline died two hours later. Wendell Potter was a CIGNA executive at the time. He saw the Sarkisyan's struggle from the inside of the profit-making company and knew that CIGNA would do whatever possible to protect the bottom line. Previously, potter had attended the premiere of 'SiCKO' with a large group of other insurance insiders set with the task of debunking the movie. But, instead, Potter was swayed and later said, "When I saw the movie, Ill be honest: I thought it was a real good documentary. I knew from my own studies of other healthcare systems that it was an accurate portrayal of those systems and how they are able to provide universal coverage." Nataline Sarkisyan's death was the last straw for Potter. He resigned from CIGNA, blew the whistle on the industry, and became an activist for health care reform. Here he is face-to-face with Nataline's family for the first time. Watching it all unfold at

'Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal', is a collection of essays, mostly by Ayn Rand, with additional essays by her associates Nathaniel Branden, Alan Greenspan and Robert Hessen. The book focuses on the moral nature of laissez-faire capitalism and private property. The book has a very specific definition of capitalism, a system it regards as broader than simply property rights or free enterprise. It was originally published in 1966. Ayn Rand born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum, February 2 1905 -- March 6, 1982), was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism. Born and educated in Russia, Rand migrated to the United States in 1926. She worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood and had a play produced on Broadway in 1935--1936. She first achieved fame with her 1943 novel The Fountainhead. Over a decade later, she published her magnum opus, the philosophical novel Atlas Shrugged, in 1957. Rand's political views, reflected in both her fiction and nonfiction work, emphasize individual rights (including property rights) and laissez-faire capitalism, enforced by a constitutionally limited government. She was a fierce opponent of all forms of ...

Chomsky on Human Desire for Freedom, Media Monopolies, & How We Can Resist This vid consists of some excerpts from a much longer Greek documentary consisting mainly of interviews of Chomsky, copyrighted 1994. See the full documentary at It's roughly divided into 3 parts: A. The Human Desire/Instinct for Freedom B. Media Monopolies C. How We Can Resist I had never seen these interviews before, and my guess is that few other English viewers have, so I thought I'd draw attention to it by posting these excerpts on my channel. I'd appreciate any further info about the documentary: its title, the names of the folks who made it, etc. (I don't know Greek!) I disavow any rights to the film, but I claim free use of the excerpts posted here.

Are Monopolies Destroying America? Most of our public debates about globalization, competitiveness, creative destruction, and risky finance are nothing more than a cover for the widespread consolidation of power in nearly every imaginable sector of the American economy, argues Barry C. Lynn in Cornered: The New Monopoly Capitalism and the Economics of Destruction. As regulation over monopolies has eased, the people who control these corporations have gained the power to govern our economy, our democracy, and our lives. Called "a manifesto for our times" by Thomas Frank in the Wall Street Journal, Lynn's latest book reveals how these monopolies came into being and how they collude with one another to maintain power. But more importantly, Cornered provides a plan for breaking up the monopolies and taking back the country.

Monopolies and Markets -- The Missing Link Properly functioning competitive markets are economically efficient. They create the maximum possible economic value for shareowners and customers combined. Monopolistic markets can be inefficient. If a sole supplier maximizes its profits, the market will suffer a deadweight loss and reduced consumer surplus. Benefit-cost ***ysis can help monopolies such as government agencies be more efficient.
