Dear Reader,

ILSR just released a comprehensive guide for state and local leaders seeking to combat growing corporate concentration and its many debilitating effects on local economies, communities, and democracy. “Fighting Monopoly Power: How States and Cities Can Beat Back Corporate Control and Build Thriving Communities” spans different sectors — banking, electricity, food & farming, small business, waste, and more — and aims to give elected officials, organizers, and citizens the tools they need to beat back corporate control and build thriving, equitable communities.

Throughout the guide, we show how some places have sidestepped the tide of consolidation in one area or another, how they’re better off as a result, and how other cities and states can adopt their approach. We lay out how leveraging state and local power to fight monopolies will create more and better jobs, spur new small businesses, help working families get ahead, and make our economies more sustainable, equitable, and resilient.

“Fighting Monopoly Power: How States and Cities Can Beat Back Corporate Control and Build Thriving Communities” is available here.

I hope this guide is valuable to you in your work — please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

My best,
Sue Holmberg
