Just like a company can hire 1000 people, a company could hire a 1000 companies.
Those companies, are, however still able to work for other companies as they see fit.
So the "economies of scale" are automatically transformed into a hierarchical structure, where each component is easily replaced by another component.

Just allow companies to only grow up until they have, say, 1000 employees.
After that, they can only split.

What this solves:
No more conglomerates, companies form modular structures, output of 1 company can be reused by another company at a useful granularity.
This leads to much more competition, where previously only monopolies or quasi-monopolies were possible.
This, in turn, reduces and redistributes power.

Possessions increase to fill the space available for their storage. -- Ryan
