Now if Staples can merge with Office Max, they can have a monopoly to price gouge everyone. All big corporations are trying to monopolize their industry to gouge customers using the record oil company profits as a business model.
Anarchistic capitalism (corporations running wild with no regulation) and rule by the wealthy elite always fails, eiter peacefully or violently, but one way or the other it will fail in the USA.

I guess Office Depot will have to raise their prices now since they are taking over the competition. Thank goodness Staples moved into town.
