Quite simple. It has already happened. Look to Greece, Rome, Britain, France, China. Greatness as a (nation, economy, pick your organizational structure) came, and with it the incipient corruption of success. Many have identified it, but as far as I know, none have found the cure. Call it the HIV of large organizational structures. "Too big to fail" also means "too big to manage". Remember the AIG. Don't be over-invested in GE.
