Maybe it's cyclical, but the heyday of big business is over for now.
Large corporations, which have been taking a lot of hits lately, are bleeding employees. A few of the ones laid off or terminated are able to get jobs with other large corporations, but many of them realize they're going to have to be their own employers. Entrepreneurship is on the rise. Cottage industry is on the rise. Mom and Pop, Son and Daughter are on the rise.
You can throw away the gray flannel suit.
