1/ 25iQuiz: Can you name a business which typifies each of the "7 Powers" in the book of the same name?

1. Scale Economies
2. Network Economies
3. Counter-Positioning
4. Switching Costs
5. Branding
6. Cornered Resource
7. Process Power 

2/ The author of 7 Powers uses different strategy terminology than people like Porter, Munger or Mauboussin, but are the approaches and foundations fundamentally different?

3/ Do you agree that certain of the 7 Powers are more likely to be more valuable during different stages of the evolution of a business?

For example, are counter-positioning and cornered resource more likely to be valuable during the origination stage?
