As I understand it, the loss of some of those labs were more a function
of management in their parent corporations wanting to shed units that
didn't help THIS quarter's bottom line (the one the managers were
getting their bonuses on), and that couldn't predict when they would
make their next scientific breakthrough.

Remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon. 

The unintended consequences of this change was the loss of the powerful
research labs like Bell Labs, Xerox PARC, RCA Labs, etc and the rise of
the National Laboratories. 

Not sure if it was worth it.
