It just indicates Goodyear can not compete in a non-monopolistic environment. They walked-away from the competition when it became apparant that Bridgestone would dominate them in Formula 1. They should have seen the writing on the wall back in 1968 when Bridgestone was awarded the Deming prize for quality. How did Bridgestone go from virtually unknown in the late 70's to a major player in the US tire market today and #1 in the world? Goodyear would be wise to study what happened.
