I wouldn't characterise the situation as "can't break through"; it's more of a Prime Mover Advantage. There are a lot of other successful flavours, but the default flavour tends to be vanilla — up to the point that "plain vanilla" has grown to be a metaphor for "default".
I suspect the tautology you seem is actually more of a feedback loop. The crucial difference is that a feedback operates along time, tying today's market results to yesterday's, and all the way back until the market started. (Also see path dependency.)
SREBP1 has long been known to manage fat storage. After a meal, SREBP1 is helping each of your cells decide whether to use the fat that just arrived for fuel or store it for later.
Lefai’s team found, in animals, that a buildup of SREBP1 in the cell can lead either to extreme muscle atrophy or extreme muscle growth. And that was something Jill was interested in. She sent Lefai a two-line email with a question about his work. He thought it was from a scientist or Ph.D. student and responded.
Soon, Jill told Lefai about her own history, and suggested that it is possible that he discovered the actual biological mechanism that makes her and Priscilla so different — SREBP1 interacting with lamin.
"If you are a power-hungry emerging market in Africa or South America, for instance, you can put up a wind farm in six to nine months, or a solar plant in three to six months.
"However, if you want to put up a coal-fired power station, it is going to take three or four years. A nuclear power plant is going to take substantially longer than that."

I love ecology, networks, geography, and anything that makes me see the world a little differently. I have been described as being "more interesting than an attack goose".
I'm happy when a post inspires active discussion. Please note, however, that non-standard definitions of standard words tend to impede communication. If you insist on such definitions, I will start a new post where you can discuss them to your heart's content and leave the original post to more substantive conversation.
