@McKenna @OCRbot Actually, the economy of many companies is very fragile; sort of like a house of cards. It's bad PR to let everyone know that, so they just don't advertise it.

I like to think of systems like this as a small warehouse with a constant flow of packages entering and leaving. When both flows are in balance, everything works beautifully. However, if one flow is ever so slightly greater than the other, you'll have a catastrophe in a month.

I've been thinking about this for awhile.

If you run your company safely/conservatively (that is, prepared for downturns), then during good economic periods, other companies willing to be riskier can offer lower prices, and drive you out of business.

When the inevitable downturn comes, the only companies left are the risky ones with no reserves, crying for handouts.

This trend seems baked into the nature of capitalism.
