Let's play with words a little. It won't be sound at all so don't get worked up over it.
We pick a
The Future of Business Is Selling Less of More.
This could mean you have fewer customers to which you provide more services. When we take that to extremes, you might have 1 (one)
customer only, for whom you do everything
. "Customer" of course means someone you give something (in this case almost everything) to, and from whom you get something else in return, money maybe. (Is your head spinning fast enough yet?)
Now, to entirely depend on one person only means you either have an extremely close relationship (child-parent) or you are a slave
. (NOW I got yer heads in a spin, right?)
By now you are wondering where the connection to the original post is. When we accept the stretches and re-definitions of words and put them back into the original quote, we could say:
The Future of Business is Slavery.
