The companies argued that because the industry’s high fixed costs made cut-throat competition ruinous cooperation to fix prices was reasonable.

New Dealers like Jackson envisioned a liberal regime in which the government used antitrust to hold big business accountable. The focus on accountability touched the nation’s isolationist foreign policy debate, the global expansion of American corporations, and the American attempt to institute a liberal trade order in a world dominated by autarkic protectionism, international cartels, colonialism, and ideological militarism.
