ICLE’s white paper on the proposed Kroger/Albertsons merger and competition in the supermarket sector was cited in an op-ed in the Las Vegas Sun. You can read the full piece here.

There is no need to worry that a merger is going to create some kind of Kroger-Albertsons grocery monopoly. Today there are three other stores that sell more groceries than them: Walmart, Amazon and Costco. According to the International Center for Law and Economics, the merger would make the company less than half the size of Costco at only an 8% share of the national market.
