Which has nothing to do with either Nortel or RIM. That works at many levels of the market, but is irrelevant here.



It's a mindset that may (or may not) be prevelant in Canada, and it looks like a heckuva interesting book, so I see lots of value in his comment.


It's a mindset that is prevalent in all provincial markets (not the geographic type). There is zero that is special about Canada.

I see these same comments each time and it kind of burns me. Nortel went to conquer much of the world. Under that Canadian management. Then they passed their zenith and failed, like countless companies before. RIM conquered much of the world. Under that Canadian management. Then they passed their zenith and failed, like countless companies before.

To see the same boring comments every time that imagines that only the latter part happened -- completely ignoring the events that led to that even being possible -- someone showing the chip on their shoulder (e.g. someone didn't listen to their ideas. Damn Canadian management!)...it's just such garbage analysis. It is so shallow and instantly discardable.
