Fascinating state of affairs. What is intriguing is that the shareholders of both BHP and RIO have not complained despite the decimation of shareholder value in each. Either they know something about the long term value of an oligopoly or they are totally impotent. An Enquiry could be very interesring and might change the blinkered vision of the ACCC.
