Sen. Elizabeth Warren's campaign has largely been overshadowed in recent weeks, but she's steadily unveiling a policy platform that would unravel years, if not decades, of corporate mega-mergers.

Driving the news: Today, her campaign put the target on Big Agriculture.

Warren said she would appoint trustbusters to reverse competitive and vertical mergers, including the Bayer-Monsanto merger of 2018 and in specific livestock industries such as chickens.

She would push for a right-to-repair that would end restrictions on where equipment could receive maintenance. This has ramifications (Apple) that go far beyond agriculture.

She would also support national restrictions on foreign ownership of farmland and agriculture companies.

1. Sounds like something we definitely need, someone to go after this mega corporations...

who seem to get bigger and bigger (and of course not getting better, but worse), and I think (IMHO) reducing competition too, so they can jack the prices up more and more, which seems to be happening all of the time. Inflation is at a low, but prices seem to keep going up and up.

Teddy Roosevelt was the first. We've drifted away from it, in recent decades.
