Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The Sherman Antitrust act of 1890 was instituted to regulate monopolies in the United States. The part of the Clayton Act referenced in the clue made it such that a person could not be on the Board of Directors of competing firms, to the degree that if the two firms in question would be ruled a monopoly per US law if they were to merge, one could not be a Director of both companies.
