Some reports suggest this is the start of an electronics shakeout.

Is the economic downturn likely to increase or decrease the possibility of further mergers?

Increase.

Increase mergers decrease workforce. It is ever thus.

I think there will be further consolidation in several industries worldwide, provided the financial institutions can help where and when necessary. That might instill some much needed confidence among them to crack open their vaults and aid these business mergers. The lending habit has got to commence again, with scrupulous control and regulation, if we ever want to get out of this mess. TC.
