Extract: A (Celler Kefauver Act of 1950) finding of the study is that despite special problems in applying the merger law in this industry, its application did not prevent the sizable industrial reorganization toward larger scale operations necessitated by changing technological and market conditions. at the same time, the policy seems to have contributed to a somewhat more competitive and decentralized industry than otherwise would have emerged. this finding may have important implications for other industries where technological forces present less formidable obstacles to effective application of the merger law.
