(redirected from cut one anothers throats)

cut one another's throats

Of a group or population of people, to be engaged in ferocious, pernicious competition with one another other. It's a symptom of the society we live in that we're all trained to cut one another's throats just to earn a little bit more money. The majority of the economy is dominated by a few megacorporations, while all the smaller businesses are cutting one another's throats for what little market share is left over.
