The Regulation of Industry

By Dudley F. Pegrum | Go to book overview
there any general federal law dealing with the activities of corporations. The individual states can control the enterprises formed in their own jurisdictions by imposing whatever conditions on formation or scope of activities they wish. This is more than offset by the diversity of state laws, which, together with the utter laxity of many of them, almost nullify the efforts of those states that try to establish real standards of incorporation. Moreover, no state can exercise jurisdiction over corporations formed elsewhere, except on business done purely within its boundaries, and, even then, it cannot interfere with interstate commerce. The result is that the holding company is practically beyond the purview of the individual state.Federal legislation has proved capable of grappling with the device, in some respects at least. The holding company cannot be used as a means of escaping the anti-trust laws. Federal legislation has also been able to regulate the holding company in transportation, public utilities, and banks. Control in these instances, however, has been achieved more through regulation of the pattern of the particular industry than of the holding company itself. For example, a holding company in the public utility field is limited by the Securities and Exchange Commission to a single system integrated according to the prescriptions of that body. To date, we have not worked out any pattern of integration in the industrial field, and, so far, we have not limited the scope of integration in the industrial field in a way that is comparable to the control which has been imposed in the special areas just mentioned.REFERENCES
