The Conclusion posits that the types of pro-inequality business practices engaged by the Bulls in recent decades, as well as the government's tolerance of such practices, continue to expand and intensify in the twenty-first century. This story transcends the sports business, as evidenced by the election of Donald Trump (one of the most notorious tax evaders in recent American history) and increasingly frequent stories of gargantuan amounts of corporate welfare handed to already profitable firms like Amazon. The conclusion also catalogs a variety of potential policy solutions in the context of the sports business, ranging from more proactive antitrust enforcement to public ownership of major-league franchises. However, it warns that the best way to solve the problems of the sports business would be to effect systemic political and economic change--for example, serious campaign finance reform, as well as more progressive local and national tax policy.
