Unlucky for customers

The idea that larger players have greater economies of scale is self evident. But I can't help feeling that all those savings won't be passed on to customers, but the accumulated deal premiums probably will. So all this M&A is good for boardroom fiddlers, bankers and lawyers, but bad news for customers of these companies, who can expect double digit price rises for the next few years.
