If bankrupting businesses is bad...why do corporations do it to each other so often?

    Just a quick question, I expect some very...um...entertaining responses to. If its so bad and awful to bankrupt or hurt a business...like they say Obama's reelection is gonna do.......then why is it that the corporate world does that to other businesses all the time??

    Huge corporations seek to crush small businesses that may grow to compete with them. Wal-Mart crushes mom and pop stores. Wal-Mart doesn't need that extra profit in some small town, but they're coming anyway. Big corporations seek to put each other out of business also. They try to, and celebrate, hurting their fellow American companies at any cost. Will their own company survive with the competition surviving also? Sure. But they all try to kill each other off anyway.

    So...how dare those soulless creatures in suits talk shit about a policy that may "harm" their business, while they've been trying for decades to KILL someone else's business?

    Fuck 'em. Karma sucks.

    Terrible, terrible post. Competition between two companies on equal footing in a free market is a whole lot different than a government rigging the game in favor of one of those businesses, or worse yet, purposefully hoping to put entire industries out of business.

    Yeah, comparing the two is absurd. But par for the course for the brain dead among us. And these are the people who put Obama in power.

    Yep. Just the exact type of responses I was expecting:

    "What a retard"
    "Thats different"
    "Brain dead"
    "Obama lover"


    But no logic on why its GOOD for corporations to put each other out of business. Hey, our govt is controlled by big business anyway. So...govt is really just a competing company with a "govt" logo slapped on it. And the Govt's "shareholders" are the takers.

    Now...any truly good, in depth responses for a real debate? Or more kindergarten insults?

    What's to debate? The premise is mindless drivel. Companies that can't compete in the markets fail. That's the way it works. Government saddling business with bureaucratic largess to the point they can't operate is quite another.

    You need an econ 101 class bub. Hell, a home-ec class would be something.

    This is good advice, bucs, and you should take heed.

    You shouldn't go thru life as a half-baked whipping boy.

    There's a difference between dynamic competition bankrupting those who were unable to adequately meet customer demand, thus freeing up resources for those who can, and government policies harming perfectly viable businesses.
