When is business big?
December 3, 2012 · Updated 4:50 PM
With so many arguing for, and pleading with, consumers to buy only from small business, the question is raised: at what point does a small business become one that has become large enough to be ignored or boycotted by the public?
It would be interesting to hear what that maximum level of success is and how it compares to what I was taught in business school.
I have the impression that many believe Sam Walton (Walmart founder) should not have created more and more stores, hired more and more people, and offered cheaper merchandise to the consumer, or William Boeing should not have expanded his aircraft-building business beyond a certain level and, in turn, hired fewer people.
