What ways did business leaders in the late 1800s try to eliminate competion?

They weren't called Robber Barons for nothing.


Please check your book for the ways that these business leaders charged lower prices than their competitors, paid lower wages, and bought other companies to form monopolies. With monopolies, these Robber Barons then raised the consumer prices and continued to treat their laborers poorly.
