Eric, I was not commenting on who deserves the traffic. More on the fact that finding the best product for the job is most important to the user.
Well, if a company spends money on anything, especially of that size and stature, it's probably solvent based on a business plan. Furthermore, if company B in your example chooses to spend more in online marketing, then yes, in my opinion, they deserve the traffic.
As for the comment on paid placement, any kind of ranking inspires people to attempt to become top. Once a search engine was invented SEO was inevitable. Paid placement was just as inevitable
