2. “Does one ‘super-corporation’ run the global economy? Study claims it could be terrifyingly unstable

 

Research found that 147 companies formed a ‘super entity’ within group, controlling 40 per cent of its wealth

 

A University of Zurich study ‘proves’ that a small group of companies – mainly banks – wields huge power over the global economy.

 

The study is the first to look at all 43,060 transnational corporations and the web of ownership between them – and created a ‘map’ of 1,318 companies at the heart of the global economy.

 

The study found that 147 companies formed a ‘super entity’ within this, controlling 40 per cent of its wealth. All own part or all of one another. Most are banks – the top 20 includes Barclays and Goldman Sachs. But the close connections mean that the network could be vulnerable to collapse.”
