That is just one small example of what I mean when companies or corporations work together.
But you do know that is also where "too big to fail" comes from, don't you? And that that's also the road to monopoly?

Did you know that this "working together" eventually becomes illegal in its advanced stages? And for good reason?

Explain ??????
I already have. In what way is defeat by a competitor good for your business?

Did you know that many companies force you to sign non-competition agreements when you're hired? You can actually get sued in a court of law if you quit and go to work for a competitor before a certain period of time elapses. Did you know that?

I already said that is only true when corporations conspire to control pricing in the market place. Both on the wholesale and retail level.

Please learn to read.

In the example I gave, that would be impossible because there are printing companies all over the USA that would have been very pleased to take all those contracts. We got them for a period of time because my company saw the advantage to them and took it while the getting was good.

I never said that.

Yes, and I have singed one of those. It lasted a year, then we stole some of my last employers business by my recommendation. It was a useless contract restrained only by a small amount of time.

Thats competition. Its not death. I has no intention to destroy my last employer. Neither did my present employer. That would have been impossible anyway. I got more working hours. My present employer got more revenue and profits.

Irrelevant - that's where "mutual cooperation" becomes "merger", which is the typical progression.

Again, this is just the touchy-feely exception. And even at that, they were probably cognizant of the legal restraints against collusion. If they could have colluded without suffering a consequence, you can be sure they would have.

But it was still an effort to stymie competitors. Which is the whole point, of course.

No. The only restraint against doing more is the law; else more would be done with no cognitive consideration whatever. That's the only restraint. That's the entire point here.

Not always.

No its not. Its an example of what I said originally about corporations cooperating together for a common goal.

You are only saying "touchy-feely" because I provided an example.
And even at that, they were probably cognizant of the legal restraints against collusion. If they could have colluded without suffering a consequence, you can be sure they would have.
They would ???

There is no way to prove that.

Besides, in the example I gave you, that did not happen. Not even close.

It is not a typical example. It's an exception and not a reliable description of normal corporate behavior absent any legal restraints.

Yes, with a confidence rate of, oh, I'd put it at about 97%.
There is no way to prove that.
The proof (or very close to it) is what rander referred to earlier - the near ubiquity of anti-trust laws among governments overseeing capitalist markets.

Then, your view of what is typical is very limited.

It is something I have experience in.

Obviously not much.

I have a few other examples of companies working together for the advantage of both that I have experience with.

But, since you claim to have a lifetime of experience with no examples, except for the possibility of something illegal, Its not difficult to see its a waste of time with you.

Best of luck.

Then why do you adhere to so much conservative nonsense?
Its the way I am wired you dummy.

Just like you are wired as a loony lefty.

I am an independent conservative.

Does that mean you don't like me no more?
