Asked a few weeks ago what kept him up at night one of Australia's leading investment bankers replied three companies, Amazon, Google, and Facebook.
They have a market cap of $US1.5 trillion and a workforce that everyday was heading to the office with the aim of making life tough for a range of other businesses.
They are becoming so powerful, like a cartel, that already some are calling for them to be broken up, while others are comparing their impact on the global economy to what oil did 100 years ago.
