AT&T Takes Over Bell System

American Bell, at the time parent corporation of the AT&T company, reorganizes and transfers its assets into AT&T. American Bell was incorporated in Massachusetts and AT&T was incorporated in New York. Massachusetts corporate laws would have limited the growth of American Bell so by reorganizing, AT&T could bypass Massachusetts law by becoming the parent company of American Bell and the Bell System. Eventually, AT&T would become a legalized monopoly in the United States.

  1. I do trust all of the concepts you have offered to your post.
    They are really convincing and will certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very short for starters. May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  2. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
