If smaller government is a good thing, by the same argument wouldn't smaller corporations be a good thing too? Conversely, if giant corporations are good, then wouldn't giant government be good too ?

This article graphically shows how a relative few giant octopus like international corporations control so much of what we use.:))eek:))

BTW, I bet their corporate political donations are impressive too :))ThumbsDwn

Does larger corperations suck more taxpayer money to opperate Z. What if everyone worked for the gov ? Could you tax everyone enough to cover thier salary and still have enough left over to pay for the operation of the gov. Funny how in one thread you say you can't compare private industry to gov yet now you are doing that very thing. Such a hypacritcal free thinker you are.:duh:

Cool chart.

Mars doesn't belong on that chart though.
As a privately held company with no stocks to the street, and no shareholders its in a different class than these other titans.
The fact that they are even on the same charts attest to them being great businessmen.

I for one prefer working for a smaller private company vs a bigger one. (sure I miss the stock - but I dont miss the bullshit)
I find the large public entities actually less stable and more subject to the whims of the market or the latest bestselling management book.

Small corporations can not compete as well because they are required to meet the same regulation and do the same paperwork, tracking and reporting as a large corporation. Of course you knew this before you made the post. There are several other reasons as well.

I would prefer to see 10 smaller corps in place of 1 large one, If it were up to me I would not want any more mergers .I don,t think its good for competition.

Are you going to make it where people don't get brand loyalty too? People whine and complain about corporations but I guarantee people will be like "I'm not buying that crap where's my Tide?" on every product they buy. Look how many Soda companies there used to be and look how many there are now. People got loyal to few and bought up the rest that had decent market share.

I didn,t say anything about dismantling any corp .people will be loyal to the company that gives them good service and value.have you ever said to your self ,I really like that product but since they were bought by whoever the product is a cheap piece of shit.Smaller corps would offer different choices and thinking.

Actually I would disagree with that with the provision the company is not so small it has no funds.

They do NOT have to meet the same regulations- public companies have to deal with revenue recognition issues and a Sarbannes Oxley where private companies can record revenue how they see fit and are free of the shackles and restraints that Sarbox puts in place and forced audits etc.

I work for a 100M a year private company. You think we cant hire a guy or two to do some paperwork?

We are not talking about companies, we are talking about corporations.

Bigger can be good- economies of scale. better control over a wider supply network, ability to weather a down-turn in one industry.....But a smaller company can change course more quickly, is not beholden to as many, and can better inspire Espirit-de-corp.....the main down side of large Corporations is getting a monopoly, which is one of the biggest threats to a Good Capitolistic system. Competotion is what makes the system work.

And companies(Or corps) are not the same exactly as Govt'.....a Govt is a monopoly, by definition, and that's why limited govt' is the way to go...There are some things a govt must do, such as Military, and basic laws & legal system......One area where there are both systems is highways; Most highways in the US are oublic, payed for by general taxes, but some are toll roads.....I drove one back east, and didn't appreciate having to stop every 10 miles to pay another quarter...but in daily use you'd have Fastrak.

Thats a difference in filing status.
One either incorporates or one does not. A company can be a corporation.

semantics

UD
Right, and specifically we are talking about those who file as a corporations who are small. They have the same reporting responsibility as one that is large.

Dead on brotherman!!!

The biggest problems for small businesses are regulations. Larger companies and corporations can do it a lot easier and can afford legal advice. Most have lawyers on tap and departments that only handle regulations. Smaller companies don't have the ability to have people just to handle regulations. Then add the levels of regulation. Local, county, state, and federal regulatory boards to cover the same issue. This can be time consuming. I've seen it first hand. I've also seen the red tape behind regulatory boards drive businesses out of business. Look at California.
If you get rid of the many layers of the same regulations, you'll see more small businesses.

Funny how in one thread you say you can't compare private industry to gov yet now you are doing that very thing. Such a hypacritcal free thinker you are.:duh:
Ever notice the ONLY morons that say you can't compare the government to business are in fact government? Funny how that seems to work out.
Anybody that preaches that line of bullshit proves they know nothing about business, or profit/loss/ or budgets. Think that may be one of the problems in the country? Democratic lawyer politicians VS Republican Businessmen? The dipshit dimbulbs think that corporations and business are simply in business to suck ALL the money to the top. Then who would buy the Iphones and cars? Where would they get the money to afford them?

But the government will tell you they can feed and house the entire nation if we tax the rich enough. Who would want to make a phione or car if there was no profit in it. Who would invest in the corporations that can't turn a profit due to taxes?

Anybody that tells you that you cannot compare government, any government to business, has his head so far up his ass he can't remember what sunlight looks like. Government employees are fed this line of shit, and they believe it completely!
Unless uf course, the comparison works to their favor, then they are the same thing.
