Capitalism fails us when companies can no longer focus on being well-run and profitable and, instead, have to focus on growth Growth GROWTH in order to keep their stock price rising. That approach is more like a Ponzi scheme than a proper investment. Eventually all the investors will realize that there is no there there anymore.

G.E. went from being a profits-based company to being a growth-focused company, and a lot of rich people got richer for quite a while, but all the running-to-stay-in-place eventually led to disaster.

Netflix got into streaming to stay alive, and that actually worked out great for them. But now they think they need to get into something else in order to keep growing. Meanwhile, it looks as though their streaming product is starting to slide, and I don't think they are sufficiently focused on that.

I heard an interview once with an auto-executive (forget which one) who said "We used to be a car company that would occasionally lend money to our customers.  Now we're a bank that also makes cars."

Once Big Content started pulling their shows and movies to form their own streaming services, they knew they had to tilt.

Amazon has the stranglehold on selling knockoff Chinese goods, maybe they can rent electric cars. Or buy Lionsgate/Starz and have a content production division.

That was GM. They became a financing company, the cars weren't vehicles for people, they were vehicles for interest bearing loans.

McD is really a real-estate company.

There is one company around me that I am somewhat curious of.  Radio ads claim its a family business for over 100 years.  Brickwork financial or something like that.

I have to wonder about the transition of what I imagine was just a brickworks business at some point and how it became a financial entity
