Henry Ford had two important advantages.

One, he was Henry Ford, with his genius and ideas.

Second, perhaps just as important, I think Ford had something like a 90% market share of the low-cost auto market, and may have been nearly as high as 50% overall market share.

If that's the case, it also demonstrates how a large company can dominate its industry if it's large enough.

The question becomes, is such a person at the head of such a company? What do you do when the counterpart to Ford in 1914 is--Wal-Mart?
