The Robinson-Patman Act was an effort by Congress to rid the business community of unfair pricing practices. Since the act did not expressly refer to functional discounts, the continuing legality of their usage was an open question. It is the purpose of this comment to measure the extent to which the trade discount has been affected by the act as interpreted by the Federal Trade Commission and the courts.
