Republicans and Democrats (though neither have IPO'd yet) ;)

If there was only a way to make money off that.  ;)

 

Running for election is one way.

24/7 political news channels is another, TV/radio which air political commercials, hotels for political conventions, etc

Alliance one and universal corp

 

There are extra lessons to be learned with these two as you will see that having a duopoly is no guarantee of great returns

 

Whoa, what the heck happened to Alliance One?  All-time low and tobacco is not declining (worldwide).

 

Well its interesting what happened....

The big tobacco companies started to threaten them with vertical integration which injected some heavy fear into management  When Im dealing with a duopoly and the supply demand situation is in your favour I expect you to raise prices.  AOI refused to raise pricing as per their conference call because  it may lead to the large tobacco companies further taking away business with more vertical integration  (why the large companies want to be in this low margin business is beyond me?  But that seems to be their fear)  Couple that with high debts and unstable political situations in some of the areas they operate and this has been a disaster  SO much for the power of duopolies.

How about a moral way for someone who doesn't feel comfortable making a living through theft, extortion, and violence?

 

And since someone already brought up politics I'll add to the duopoly list:

 

Jesus vs. Mohammad.

Well Islam considers Jesus to be a prophet as well, actually in Islam he is supposed to return to defeat the Al-Masih ad-Dajjal (essentially the equivalent to the anti-Christ) near the day of judgement.

 

Yes, I should have worded that  Jesus worshipers Vs. Mohammad followers.
