YKK makes the best zippers in the world. Seriously, there's at least even odds the zipper on your fly right now is YKK (it'll say right on the zipper pull) and the way when I do have trouble with a zipper, it's NEVER a YKK, is remarkable.

The company also has its own philosophy and assorted weirdness, almost like a little cult, and the opposite of Ayn Rand-ism...

Given the way capitalism has progressed, with the emphasis away from investment in value propositions to speculation and high frequency trading (with 'too big to fail' at the highest levels to bail the gamblers out), I find this idea hopeful.
