Ok, so Fortune has released it's annual list of America's LARGEST corporations. I'm just wondering, does anyone else sense a theme here:
|1. Wal-Mart Stores||6. General Electric|
|2. Exxon Mobil||7. Ford Motor|
|3. Chevron||8. Citigroup|
|4. General Motors||9. Bank of America|
|5. ConocoPhillips||10. AT&T|
You have Wal-mart which basically has it's hands into EVERYTHING now, so that's not a suprise.
Then you see THREE of the top FIVE are OIL companies.
TWO of the top Seven are Automobile companies.
And TWO of the top ten are BANKS.
I'm seeing that in a country that is fighting a recession, spurred on by higher costs of goods as a direct result of MUCH higher gas prices and a housing industry in trouble nationwide brought on by poor lending practices, SEVEN of the top TEN largest corporations in Amercia have a direct influence on those major issues.
What's wrong with this picture?
