 Trust busting

 

Room in the Wilcox Mansion, where Roosevelt was sworn into the Presidency

 

Trusts were increasing the central issue in politics, with public opinion fearing that large corporations could impose monopolistic prices to cheat the consumer and squash small independent companies. By 1904, 318 trusts controlled about two-fifths of the nation’s manufacturing output, not to mention powerful trusts in non-manufacturing sectors such as railroads, local transit, and banking. Roosevelt decided to do something about it.
