College bookstores have always held a natural monopoly in the sense that they were the only competitors in the area that provided books to students, forcing students to have to purchase their books at any price. But today in the 21st century, the Internet is bringing in more competition with Amazon, thus driving prices lower for students. Some bookstore CEO praises the new competition.

In this case the Barbie company continued to make dolls that only interested young girls, when other firms saw the popularity of this product they decided to create action figures that replicated their favorite shows. At this point the Barbie company started making more boy dolls, but none of which compared to their American heroes.

America's largest insurance company has dropped out of the market because they said Obamacare is too big of a financial risk. The effect of them dropping out proves insurance companies are natural monopolies because of the effect it will have on rural areas in the South.
