It will start going off into the political but bigger companies just have
more regulations: SOX, healthcare requirements, etc because the mentality

they can somehow afford stuff that the smaller guy cannot (there may be
some truth to the economies of scale there). And some businesses just
also have a much lower profit margin and not because they are padding
executive salaries. The food industry for example.

None of that contradicts the idea that bigger companies, by and large,
have deeper pockets. Even if they have much lower margin percentage.
(That was the point of my example. Did you miss that? The regulations,
healthcare, etc. are one reason *why* big companies often have lower
margin percentage.) By definition, having deeper pockets means being
able to pay more for something.

This has nothing to do with whether that is right or wrong. It just
is. And because of that, there will always be some vendors who try to
extract more money from bigger customers.
