Competitive world

When you have less people buying stuff and less people working at companies, eventually one issue comes into play that was not there when everything was hunky dory: competitiveness.

A manufacturer can no longer thrive by being the number four choice of consumers. That will not mean enough business for them to survive.

Dealers can no longer merely carry the top brands and wait for consumers to break down their walls to buy. If they aren't a top producer, they risk being eliminated by manufacturers looking for more aggressive dealers.

If an employee feels secure just because he or she isn't the worst performer in the company, he or she may be the next one laid-off.

Whether we are competitive or not by our nature, doesn't matter. The nature of business today is changing and the strongest will need to adjust and compete.
