I haven't been trying to up my bench/squat/dead total.

I've been working on overhead pressing over bench, and bottom-up squats over conventional. I've also been really working on loaded carries like farmers walks, and overhead holds. My deadlift is shooting back up though. Got 335 for 5 on a 3 inch deficit pretty easy recently.

No. I'm saying if you have a larger corporation begin doing business in an area with smaller businesses, those larger businesses will usually be able to outcompete smaller businesses as they have far greater resources and don't necessarily rely on those outside markets to hold themselves up.

A good example would be Chinese corporations heavily investing into many African economies and trying to monopolize their energy industries.

Larger corporations created from nations with greater amounts of regulation could monopolize foreign industries, is what I meant to say.

#122500 - marinepenguin (07/21/2016) [-]
Regulation plays into it. A larger business will be able to apply more resources into an overseas investment, so if regulation actually benefits larger corporations like I claimed earlier than that would mean that larger corporations could more successfully monopolize foreign industries more easily.

I don't think it's as simple as that - Governments also create anti-monopoly legislation to reduce the likelihood of exactly what you describe.

Some smaller nation's economies are entirely dominated by large multinational corporations and they don't have large government.
User avatar
#122462 - marinepenguin (07/20/2016) [-]
That's true, but most governments don't solely have regulations to break up monopolies, and many companies can cooperate with each other to overcome those regulations. We can see this with the internet providers parceling out sections of the US to where they agree to have monopolies over certain areas and don't infringe on each others customers.

And the term you're missing there is "multinational", these businesses don't grow in the smaller and poorer nations, they grow in the larger and richer ones, then spread into the smaller nations, beating out the local businesses with their much greater resources.

tbh don't get why you would want to be natural in the world of putting on mass (aka bodybuilding) doesn't click in my brain. If you want to be natural you have to want to stay around 200lb lean max.

Because bodybuilding isn't solely about building mass though it does help obviously , and there are serious potential issues with take large amounts of hormones, testosterone or what-have-you that can do irreparable damage to your body. And while you can take them carefully and see almost zero side effects some people just either aren't interested in subjecting their body to those risks or aren't interested in competing to where it would be really worth it.

well I have been lifting for 2 years and training for about 2.5-3 years
I went from 115-120 to 165 lean.

I was absolutely mister skellington and I am tall but still I had shit genetics, I think most people can expect ATLEAST 10

And you are still a fairly new lifter. I'm only really an intermediate level lifter. An advanced lifter who's been progressing for 10 years won't put on 10 pounds of new lean mass in a year naturally.

The left hates nuclear energy because of environmental concerns that science has already disproven
#122503 - anon (07/21/2016) [-]
Yet ironically their anti-nuclear activism CAUSES environmental problems when they block new reactors from being built and force the continued use of older reactors built on earlier safety standards.

Business should be more environmentally aware. Not only is it good for future mankind, it also benefits businesses long term.

In terms of serious polution where it is possible to drastically reduce it, yes.

In terms of small differences, no.

"it's too bad that they don't realise that a large corporation can only really exist with the presence of a large government entity "

Why do you say that?

#122460 - marinepenguin (07/20/2016) [-]
As a business grows larger it struggles to cater to smaller groups of people, and eventually are beat out by smaller business that are more flexible in their services to their local populace. Large business usually advocate for more regulations because they discourage the growth of smaller businesses that can't afford it, while the larger businesses can continue to monopolize their particular markets and grow their revenues even though they may pay a bit more in terms of regulatory costs.
