Google tells me Mitsubishi's profit margin is about 4%. So 50 B in profits means 1.25 T in revenue. Customers got stuff from Mitsubishi that was worth more than 1.25 T to the customers -- they bought the stuff because they wanted it more than they wanted 1.25 T. Are you counting all that trillion-plus-worth of stuff Mitsubishi gave its customers, when you say "take and very little give"?It's a mostly "take and very little give" relationship.
They do about 50 B in profit per year.
I am certainly not against capitalism but lets not pretend that the pendulum hasn't swung hard.
