What effect did the monopoly have on American in 1900?

Monopolies were outlawed at this time in most countries (including the 2 biggest, the U.S. and the U.K.) because of the Monopoly the East India Trade Company had had on tea. Monopolies are bad for economies. Plain and simple. They destroy competition, which is the basis of an economy. "To compete is to win." However, not too long ago (I think the 1920's...ish?) the U.S. had within it's boundaries a monopoly in the railway industry. Almost all railroads were owned by a single company that charged different rates to different customers. Theodore Roosevelt interfered with Capitalism (again for the millionth time, not criticizing here at all, I idolize TR because of this) and split the company into several different competing companies to avoid the economic slump beginning to form because of this. In today's economy it would be very difficult to do what Roosevelt did because it is not within the power of the Federal Government to interfere with most commerce. What Roosevelt did was in essence a strike against Democracy in the defense of the World's most powerful democracy. It would also be extremely difficult to create a monopoly in today's global market. This surprising includes petroleum because petroleum is exported from several different companies. They don't have to compete very much because natural gas is in such high demand it's not even funny. They are mainly Islamic, which matters a lot because they use a misinterpreted version of the Islamic Faith that is hostile towards the West. This hostility unites them. This may be all semi-irrelevant because I have no idea where in the world you are asking about or what monopoly you are asking about. Are you asking about the Cuban Monopoly on sugar? Or one of the Hawaiian Monopolies?
