Some of you accuse me (unjustly, of course) of being un-necessarily hard on Big Mergers. Hence, I offer "no comment" on yesterday's page 1 Wall Street Journal headline:
"After Sprint and Nextel Merge, Customers and Executives Leave: Combining Wireless Giants Multiplies Their Problems as They Slip Behind Rivals"—Headline, p1, WSJ, 10.11.06
And "no comment" again on this feature in the 16 October issue of Fortune:
"The (Second) Worst Deal Ever: Boston Scientific paid too high a price to snatch Guidant from Johnson & Johnson. The story of the biggest blunder since AOL/Time Warner."
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
