Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Price Discrimination Morton Salt Company, a large producer of table salt, had an established price scale for its product based on the quantity of salt ordered in a 12-month period. Thus, a firm that ordered a substantial quantity of salt paid less per package than a store that ordered a smaller quantity. Acting in response to complaints from small firms, the Federal Trade Commission investigated and determined that the lowest price offered by Morton Salt Company, although available to all customers, was practical only for five national customers who purchased in sufficiently large quantities to benefit from the lowest prices established. Would the alleged price discrimination be covered under the Robinson-Patman Act? [ FTC v. Morton Salt Co. , 334 U.S. 37]
