No, monopolies are a breach of the underlying principles of capitalism. One
of them is that there is a marketplace that includes competing suppliers of
equivalent products. (I'm fairly sure of that one. When my wife returns, I
can probably get her to remind me of the others.) In monopoly and oligopoly
situations, this is clearly not the case.
