It's a demographics issue:

1. The "old boys" are beginning to retire - hence succession problems.

2. The "old boys" didn't cultivate any new blood.

3. The old firms are now either "hoping" to be bought out by a larger firm...or

4. The "old firm" is waiting to shut down because the "old boys" can't keep going to networking events - why would you need more work if you're already putting in 2,500 hour years at age 58 or so.

Big 4 alumni meetings are still PACKED I notice though.

There's my thinking.
