Governor Blunt on the Anheuser-Busch Takeover
Missouri Governor Roy Blunt, a vehement opponent of InBev's proposed takeover of Anheuser-Busch, has asked the Federal Trade Commission to review the deal, saying that he is "concerned that this sale would have destabilizing impacts on our nation and state's long-term economic interests." It is a curious move because InBev has no market share to speak of in the United States. One could say it is purely political; he looks like he is doing something. In the spirit of the 80s, I am surprised that he is not asking the Missouri legislature to pass some draconian anti-takeover legislation.
