The setence below is quoted from the defination of "shakeout" in Oxford dictionary:
an upheaval or reorganization of a business, market, or organization due to competition and typically involving streamlining and layoffs.
I decode "streamlining" as kind of "retrenching", trying to make the business or organization smaller in size.
I think the word also infers something like "being more efficient", because a steamlining vehicle goes faster...
Is that so?
