Corporations and Countries: The BiggestJanuary 27, 2013
We are not yet in the world of “Jonathan E”, where the world and the Rollerball teams are run by global sector monopolies (Transport, Food, Communications, Housing, Luxury, and Energy).
However, today, the revenues of the world’s biggest corporations (and the major banks who hold their stock) are larger than many national economies.
Seven of the top 10 are oil and gas companies. Royal Dutch Shell has revenues higher than all but 25 of the world’s largest national economies. Exxon Mobil, SinoPec and BP are individually larger than all but the top 29 nations.
Five of the top 25 corporations are automotive groups: Toyota, Volkswagen, GM, Daimler and Ford.
The annual revenue of Warren Buffet’s investment firm Berkshire Hathaway, is greater than the GDP of most of the world’s nations. Could these companies be managed more efficiently than some countries?
From Our Clients
We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.
I am very happy with my new website from Digital Tsunami.
Not only did they design it, they also created my logo, and gave me valuable advice and professional feedback.
Through Digital Tsunami, my website now looks professional, easy to navigate and (through my customised CMS), easy to update.
For providing a reliable, fast, and well maintained hosting service for business websites, I recommend Andrew and his company Digital Tsunami. The technical support given has been above and beyond, their hosting the fastest I have experienced, and is very well maintained with no issues.
Andrew certainly bends over backwards for his new and current clients, and I can tell he genuinely cares about providing nothing short of an outstanding service.
By taking the time to understand our business, industry and vision, Digital Tsunami created a site that truly reflected our leadership position in the market and our strategic direction.
Digital Tsunami's expertise in visual design, photography, website navigation and business writing, resulted in an extremely effective website.
The project was expertly managed from end to end which resulted in a fast and efficient process.
I have viewed all the videos and would like to commend you on the excellent quality.
I would like to thank you for the excellent editing which portrays the event as dynamic and stimulating.
