Samsung's success is somewhat mystifying as it runs contrary to the style of success and failure we've witnessed over the last ten years.
The most successful company of the last ten years is Apple, a company defined by its innovation and focus on a handful of products.
Samsung, by contrast, will copy anything and everything. It also manufactures a lot of stuff.
We've also witnessed a slow unwind of mega-corporations. GE was hit hard during the financial crisis, and has slowed its expansion into new business lines.
Samsung, on the other hand, makes skyscrapers, big ships, smartphones, TVs, and refrigerators, to name a few items.
1)Samsung has been around since 1938. The Samsung Group is made up of 80 different businesses.
