    •  Name one? I can name hundreds. (0+ / 0-)

      UPS, FedEx, and DHL compete internationally and domestically for trade.

      Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa Johns, and others compete just in the pizza segment.

      Walmart in Retail competes with Target, K-Mart, others.

      Large grocery chains exist within the Fortune 1000.

      There are lots of very large companies without a regional monopoly.

      Home Depot has Lowes.

      Etc.
