How could "reducing the number of suppliers" enable "the automotive companies tighten their control over the remaining suppliers and gain more bargaining power in negotiating even deeper price concessions"?

Isn't that contrary to the commone business sense?


I honestly believe that the end of the large automotive factory's is going to be the unions. The unions are long overdue to be removed from power. GM pays over 2billion every year in union medical benefits. How can they effectively compete with other manufactures such as KIA when they're making cars twice as cheap.
