- This vignette cartoon depicts how economies of scale determine public opinion. For instance, "no. 9" shows a handful of criminals robbing a citizen on the street. The criminals are considered "desperate and dangerous highwaymen." In "no. 10," however, three men labeled "Trust" have Uncle Sam at gunpoint and are "robbing the whole country by the tariff," yet they "are 'great industrial and financial magnates.'"
