If the size screws up go here for a better picture.

Just wanted to share this with you guys. It's a great visual to help wrap your mind around all the connections going on in big business. I think it's a great little reference tool.

This is an ideal tool for demonstration how corporations use brands to create monopolies. Thankyou for posting it.

You have to remember that corporations have to rely on other corporations for services. Good ole' Teddy Roosevelt made it illegal for one corporation to control every aspect of their business like a Steel Company going from mining the product to selling it on the shelf.

There has to be connections.

Of course that's very true. Without the connections things would be much different.

Before they broke up the monopoly's it was far worse having the robber barrons dictate everything to the people. At least now all the evil corporations have to fight amongst each other.

lol much better having the evil corporations duke it out. Still some the connections kinda surprised me and I just have a thing for infographics.

It kinda looks like the 6 degress of Kevin Bacon. I'm sure if you looked deep enough you could connect all of them to each other in just a few steps.

Good post though so star and flag for you

The way certain groups work, they may as well be the same company and if you had ever worked for one of them you'd have seen the ridiculously overpriced and expensive purchases from other companies within the group.

I think a lot more of this kinda thing goes on than we realize. Do you have any personal stories? Always like to hear them and it's real quiet in here.
