  • The example works against any crushing mega corp.


    In the case of shell lumber they shut down a home depot five miles from their store.


    Then they went on the offensive offering exotic lumber at very competetive prices.


    They are ruling in Dade County.


    One store.

  • They have been in business 38 years and have many locations, so it is not like the Joe Johnson example with someone starting out today. It works for Milam today but wouldn't work for Joe Johnson and the situation I gave.


    I would wager Milam is bought out in the next 5- 10 years.


    That looks like a great group of stores.

  • Hey 69, with the bikes I was using the frame manufacturer as an example. Not the complete bike.


    Your example with Safeway is a good one.

    And it too ties in with the need to stem the flow of "cheap shit" into the US. Because that's were many of the mega companies get goods to beat down local companies.

    Amazon is a great example. One of their tactics is to buy bulk shit from China and other sweatshops and import them to Canada and Mexico. From there they ship to distribution centers around the US. By doing so and because of NAFTA they circumvent tariffs. Local shops and/or "brick and mortar" don't stand a chance.


    Tariffs can help smaller companies compete with larger companies in that way.


    Another way to compete with the mega corps is to stay off their radar. Build a great product at a fair price and keep your head down. Once you get too big they will take notice and come for you. When they do that's when it gets tuff. They'll go after your customers and undercut your prices. Sometimes they will take a lose for a short time just to get the market shares. It sucks and it happens and at that point you better have other customers or you're in trouble.

  • What do you mean? A grocery store has to make it in its neighborhood

  • Tariffs are complex. there is no doubt about that. Slave labor... protectionism... subsides. You can not talk about Tariffs without talking about those things. Tariffs are the end game of a lot of those things. The japs were really good at understanding that and they brought some of biggest industries to their knees by playing the long game on flooding markets with high ticket items.


    The end game is always to make it so the country targeted simply loses all of its power to manufacture anything. It also helps if you can bribe that countries politicians into crippling regulation of its manufacturing. An example would be... you make all your stuff with slave labor and cheap power from massive and numerous coal fired plants.


    Said smart country would then support politicians in the targeted country who favored huge minimum wage increases and crippling bennies. At the same time they would support environmentalists and others who outlawed cheap means of making power in that country.


    Said smart country would also look at the election laws and flaws and maybe do some cheating there to get in toadies.


    Then they would use their influence to send out the message that Tariffs were evil and a 'tax on the people' while not changing their own tariff laws.
