Not at all. Standard Oil still had competitiors. AMD isn't at the stage it was. However, AMD does own the means of production of its CPU, and the factories. So yes I can use that example. Don't challenge me in this regard. You can't win.

I'm not talking about that.

Standard Oil won -> By buying out and outdoing (putting out of buissness) other companies (not that they have no competors as of now).

AMD -> One competetor (Intel).

Standard Oil always had competitiors. They didn't quite buy out everyone (I believe Standard Oil now is Exxon Mobile).

America isn't far behind because many of those companies in Asia work in conjunction with companies in the Silicon Valley.

Very true. nVIDIA was founded by an Asian. So was ASUS (they're actually based in Taiwan).
