Bumble Bee tuna price-fixing case, like Starkey fraud prosecution, could change white-collar prosecutions

When the roll call is sounded of business deals that looked like a good idea at the time but went massively wrong, special notice should go to the merger of the tuna packagers Bumble Bee and Chicken of the Sea, announced in late 2014.
