How powerful are companies?

By: Idalia.

To catch up with the whole discussion of the power of the company against that of the state… Well, ok, I guess first someone should define if power is greater in its economic form, or its political one… But just for the sake of argument, if we decide that economical power- meaning the size of your revenue- translates into political power, can you imagine how much power can Yahoo or Wal-Mart have in comparison to a country? No? Well… I might just leave this here!

I know it will take me a while to get over Wal-Mart’s case…. And that is not even considering their political links, the other companies they own…. And you know… any other aspect besides its economic share…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
