The Sherman Act outlawed restraint of trade . The Clayton Act added to that. Anti-Trust hysteria came in the 1940-50s. Whatever you did would be considered monopolistic. The charges didn't come from consumers, they came from whining competitors.

The Federal Reserve was created in 1913 by Morgan men to cartelize the banking system and limit competition. This is fractional reserve banking rather than 100% reserves. Rothbard thinks it is fraud. It increases the money supply in an inflationary manner by creating money out of thin air.
