I was wondering, what do you think is the most intense corporate rivalry?

My vote goes to Boeing vs. Airbus. They have been in a heated trade war for years.

I think of many of those as healthy rivalries. blue ocean industries. When I think of intensity, I think of rivalry where it is so intense that it’s deadly to both sides. Something where competition sucks all the margin out. Or sometimes the opposite, where there’s huge margin. Like make-up. Just try and go after that shelf space.

I think cpg companies, like food companies. You cut and cut and cut to go after market share that’s declining. Red ocean industries. There’s not enough left for them all to survive but they’re just dragging each other into the abyss slowly.

Many of those companies are owned by pretty much the same institutional investors, or at the very least, much the shareholding parties have innumerable ties to one another. I not sure what all that competing is for.

I picked other. If you lived in the PNW/Seattle area in the 80s, the rivalry between Olympia and Rainier beer was epic. At one point they were re-enacting the others' commercials with different endings and it was hilarious.

Office Depot bought out OfficeMax several years ago, but retained OfficeMax as a separate brand, so it is Office Depot vs. Staples.
