Harriman vs. Hill

University of Minnesota Press

Seven decades of stifling government railroad regulation and government subsidization of commercial aviation, trucking, and inland water transport. 1970 Supreme Court rules unanimously to allow Great Northern, Northern Pacific and Burlington to merge, thereby overturning the 1904 5-4 decision against merger. Railroads become the last major U.S. transport industry to be deregulated. Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway buys BNSF, the Hill legacy lines. American railroad freight system remains the world’s most successful such system and is the only entirely private run system in the world.

Keywords:   Railroads, Wall Street, Free enterprise, JP Morgan, Theodore Roosevelt, Sherman Act, Anti-trust, Competition versus combination, James J Hill, Edward Harriman
