|Soon we're going to be the only one. MUAHAHAHHAHAHAA!|
A quote from the richest man in the world, Carlos Slim, is possibly one of the greatest ones I ever come across. "When you live for others opinions, you are dead. I don't want to live thinking about how I'll be remembered." He's worth around $74 billion? The reason I bring this up is that his company owns around 90% of the home phones in Mexico, He crushed the competition and killed thousands of jobs,and his phone company is said to charge highest usage fees in the world. This probably won't happen seeing as we supposedly have laws against this kind of thing. I mean this is America right? There's no way one company could own an entire market, right?(Wrong) Ok, fine. That doesn't even really count because radio has 3 mediums which it can broadcast, Airwaves, Satellite,and Internet. But this is where things get sketchy when it comes to phones, There are supposedly around 268 million landline phone subscribers in the United States, and of that, 140 million of those are Verizon. That is just, insane. This also raises the question, should corporations be allowed to control a large share of a nations communications market? Well, I'm going to go buy a few walkie talkies, thanks for reading.
