Abstract

In what might be described as a modern-day David and Goliath, merchants in the United States find themselves pitted against both credit card companies and state legislatures in a battle over the ability to impose surcharges on purchases made with credit cards. Rather than a sling and a few smooth stones like the noble David in the biblical account of one of the most famous underdog stories ever told, merchants are wielding something far more powerful: the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
