Potash Corp - Agrium - Mosaic - Potash Companies In US Courts For Price Fixing

In Brad Wall's Saskatchewan, Potash corporations hold a special, (some would say), untouchable status. Major potash players in Saskatchewan are in American courts facing allegations of international price fixing. This should be big 'news' in this potash producing province ... but it isn't.

"For decades, people have accused the potash industry of operating like a cartel to keep prices artificially high. They are now closer to having their day in court. Last week, a U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago sent shockwaves through the fertilizer industry by ruling that an antitrust suit against potash producers should go ahead. That reversed a prior court decision to dismiss it, and set the stage for a legal battle that could run for years. The class action suit alleges that seven Canadian, Russian and Belarusian companies have colluded to keep U.S. prices elevated, effectively acting as a “global cartel”. The defendants, including Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc. and Agrium Inc., dominate world supply." Financial Post
