Typical American Strategy

Hotwire Achtung!!
Jul 21 5 Comments

1. Enter an uncharted territory - call it innovation
2. Wage a war - call it a startup - even if it incurs heavy losses in the process
3. Establish a monopoly - smoke out the competition through any and all tactics - false promises to employees or investors, marketing techniques or psychological tricks on customers, partnerships and discounts to bully out the competition, etc..
4. Impose a tax - charge for even small and minute features like mandatory registration for using a product just once
5. Create barriers to entry - acquire smaller players and force others to either sell or be wiped out in the competition
6. Binge - just do enough to survive comfortably and be above the competition in market, don't give more to customers or employees than they are ready to suck up for.

      Nope. Capitalism doesn't have to be monopolistic and driven by greed.

      Sure, but how is capitalism currently implemented in our world?

      Sounds like unregulated capitalism to me. Competitors always seek competitive advantages and aren't opposed to achieving monopoly status.
