Given all the merger activity that DOES take place, my skeptical views about the benefits of mergers in professional businesses seem to be out of step with what’s going on out there. What am I missing?
I just don’t like when bigger and more powerful companies merge with lesser known companies in order to overtake their resources and knowhow.
