@deshipu That's not what I observe. I see them failing and disappearing left and right. The few that survive remain because there are diminishing returns in competing with them. They live because they literally don't matter to the larger players.
Also small private businesses, in my experience, tend to be much more cut-throat, exploitative and dishonest than larger ones. They're small enough to fly under the law's radars, and they exploit this to survive.
