I guess some define 'capitalism' to include political strategy, and hold legitimate the practice of procuring legislation to keep competitors at bay.

    Make rules to break rules, make rules to break competitors. What happened to the man who was glad to lose to a competitor more talented than he? What happened to the winner who after crushing is competitor offered him a job?

    What is amazing is that the competition (the ones banning the more productive) instead of finding ways to use the new methods, reduce their costs and rent out more rooms seek to use violence to remove the more efficient instead of mimicking and improving on their methods. The resort to violence to protect their interest enslaves all, including themselves, they cannot now compete without violating the new rules they have created.

    Competition is the enemy of business, but the savior of consumers !!

    If you are going to be in business, competition should be accepted as a way of life and not be fought against.

    There are myriad benefits to competition, but there is one that I didn't think of until I talked to a fellow camera store owner way back in the 70's. He said that if he had the money, he would open 3 stores, one on each block next to his store. He'd allow each store to be run autonomously. The idea is to create a camera store center with each store competing. It would bring more buyers, who could shop and compare without running all over town and everyone would benefit.
