Directory of Transnational Corporations
compiled by George Draffan
"If a politician was to accept money from a convicted serial killer and then pardon him for his crimes, it would elicit a major political scandal. But if a politician accepts money from a corporation that has the blood of hundreds of thousands on its hands, no one blinks an eye, not even when the politician helps prevent or gut legislation that would significantly improve public health (and hurt our business interests). Ahh, how nice it is to be a corporation."
"We need to publish a Catalog of Global Carpetbaggers, entrepreneurs eager to profit on misery. We should name names and illustrate the book with the shocking examples of what these people and their uncontrolled multinationals have done to the earth. We should describe these companies, who controls them and estimate whether they are solvent enough to put up a big environmental restoration bond." -- David Brower, Earth Island Journal, Fall 1991
"The Old is dying and yet the New cannot be born; in this interregnum, a variety of morbid symptoms appear."
-- Antonio Gramsci
Truth appears in light, falsehood rules in power;
To see these things to be is cause of grief each hour.
Knowledge, why didst thou come, to wound and not to cure?...
O power, where art thou, that must mend things amiss?
Come, change the heart of man, and make him truth to kiss.
Herein is my Catalog of Carpetbaggers: a database on the activities of the modern corpirates.
I have endeavored to be as accurate as possible, but a complete description of the global economy is impossible. The entries are based on the sources cited, but are current only as of the dates cited. For example, we are in the midst of the greatest corporate merger wave in history, and I have not kept up with mergers. Additional information on corporations can be found by using my research links webpage. I also provide research services.
It is up to activists whether a corporation deserves criticism, a boycott, or a campaign. This directory is compiled only as a source of information. What groups or individuals do with this information is up to them, and is their responsibility.
The Directory is being updated as resources allow.
Corrections and suggestions, as well as additional, documented information, are welcome.
