But consumers do not regret the economies nor the consequent reduction in competition; why should critics? Consumers could increase competition any time they choose by indicating their willingness to pay higher prices to cover the higher costs of the smaller less efficient firms.

Again, it is the vision of the purely competitive wonderland that is threatened by large, efficient firms, and not efficiency from a free-market per spective.
The first is that market price is determined by total market demand and total market supply. At the equilibrium price con sumers are purchasing (or are willing to purchase) some precise amount of market product— and no more. It would seem logical, therefore, to conclude that any increase in supply— if it is to be sold— must have some perceptible effect on market supply and market price. The effect may be “small” but there must be some effect in order to sell the additional output. It will not suffice to assert that an atomistic firm is so tiny that its output has no “appreciable” effect on the market.
