It's very hard to maintain a moplonoy for very long. If you've ever worked for a large company you know they are burdened by inefficiency, bloat, bureaucracy, TPS forms, etc. It's a wonder they can do anything! It's relatively easy for lean, upstart companies to compete with them because they don't have the overhead. The moplonoy can buy out its competitors for a while, but that soon gets too expensive. The only way a moplonoy can last very long is if it constantly works to streamline itself, but that requires incredible discipline that has to be constantly maintained.Many large companies turn to government to try to maintain their market positions. They try to get the government to limit competition through regulations, standards, licenses, etc. or to outright help them through subsidies, bailouts, and contracts. Governments end up creating many more monopolies than they ever destroy.
