Agreed! I’ve noticed for all of corporate entities’ talk about the “free market” what they really want is a monopoly, or a system in which they’re guaranteed success but everyone else can fail. I think some businesses actually get so big that they think they’re entitled to our money, and they don’t have to do anything to earn it. Just keep churning out the same old tired products and presentation.
I was just at a car show, talking to a corporate guy from a major auto parts retailer, and he tells me they’re all scared shitless by Tesla and driverless cars. People will still need oil and tires I guess, but a lot of their business model is going to fall apart and the people at the top are either good ol’ boys who are unwilling or unable to change, or they simply don’t know what to do about it.
