One explanation appeals to be behavioral traits; the managers acquiring firms may be driven by overconfidence in their ability to run the target firm better than its existing management. This may well be so, but we should not dismiss more charitable explanations. For example, Firms can enter a market either by building a new plant or by buying existing business. If the market is not growing, it makes more sense for the firm to expand by acquisition. Hence, when it announces the acquisition, firm value may drop simply because investors conclude that the market is no longer growing.
Another way that our economy is taking a hit is because of all the proposed plans. Most of them are created to combat the problem at hand rather than defeat it at the source. This, in turn, is causing taxpayers to pay more money to fight a war that is impossible to win. The environment will be expensive to fix, but with healthier, fresher minds, the problem can be solved

In addition, it can also deteriorate the core of the company by reducing the number of employees and as a result causing an insufficient workforce. “Workers originally want unions primarily for defensive purposes -- to protect against what they see as arbitrary decisions, such as sudden wage cuts, lay-offs, or firings. If they are going to compete successfully in an economy that can go boom or bust, then they need a great deal of flexibility in cutting wages, hiring and firing, and adding extra hours of work or trimming back work hours when need be.” (Domhoff, 2013) Another example is that, when being protected under a union, it makes it difficult to discipline workers. Participation in a union starts to become more about the circulation of connections rather than skills proficiency.

Firms may be forced to supply the demands for cheaper but more reliable products or to create differentiated products to maintain the competitive
When people know that they have a choice to help a good company and still receive the goods that they want, they will buy from that good company. It would start a vicious cycle. More and more people will buy from the humane industries, giving them more money. When more people buy from the good companies, that means that less people will buy from the bad companies, and those companies will lose money. Ultimately, either the inhumane industries will go out of business or cave in to the demands of the people.
Trauson, their first acquisition Stryker was a leading maker of specialty medical and surgical products, a market expected to show strong sales growth. Stryker marketed its products directly to hospitals and physicians in the United States and 100 other countries. Given the decline in the number of hospitals due to consolidation and cost containment efforts by government programs and health care insurers, the industry expected continued downward pressure on prices.
