1902 Alphabet Of Joyous Trusts Antitrust Burr Businessman Capitalism Commerce Frederick Greed Monopoly Opper Political Robber Rubber Satire Trust


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "ANTI-TRUST CARTOON, 1902" takes us back to a pivotal moment in American history. The image showcases a satirical cartoon by Frederick Burr Opper from his book "An Alphabet of Joyous Trusts" published in the same year. It cleverly mocks the United States Rubber Trust, one of many powerful monopolies that dominated early 20th-century commerce. The cartoon captures the essence of capitalist greed and political corruption prevalent during this era. A portly businessman representing the rubber trust is depicted as a robber baron, symbolizing their ruthless pursuit of wealth and power at the expense of fair competition. This visual critique serves as an important reminder of how unchecked capitalism can lead to detrimental consequences for society. As we gaze upon this thought-provoking artwork, it transports us to turn-of-the-century America when trusts were rampant and antitrust laws were still in their infancy. Through satire and wit, Opper's cartoon exposes these unscrupulous practices while shedding light on the need for regulatory measures to protect consumers and promote healthy market competition. Though created over a century ago, this timeless piece continues to resonate today as debates surrounding monopoly power persist. It reminds us that vigilance against concentrated economic control remains crucial in maintaining a just and equitable society.
