ogiemen in their nightmares.
Fortune found that the big were giants, all right. About

Nor is the situation stultifying, as those who wag their
gers in warning would have us believe.
“Since 1939,” comments Fortune, “the number of mining
d manufacturing companies has increased from about 240,-
0 to 360,000, or by 50 percent.”
HE conclusion is that the size of the Big 500 is no threat
to competitiveness if the business birth rate and popula-
n statistics mean anything. ,
There were found to be 21 firms in the 500 which each

itors was tops with about 10 billion. Standard Oil (N.J.)
d over five billion in sales. U.S. Steel was third with more
in three billion.
There has been a sneaking suspicion in some circles that
len big business gets bigger it cannot escape a destiny of
•vice rather than profits. Shaving prices and manufacturing
I sts to the bone to increase sales could not lead elsewhere.
The new study tends to confirm this. Big sales were no
arantee of profits. One firm, fifth in total sales, was 98th
net profits. Another, 37th in sales, was 354th in profits.

grown into an astonishing metro-

living example of what can be

Chances are it has its drawbacks,
but visitors don’t hear about that.
