The Kassandra Project

 

By studying economic data on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) reported by International Monetary Fund in the years from 2005 to 2007, and those reported by Global 500 by Fortune in the same years about revenues, we made a list of top 100 economies and some statistics…
They follow the top 100 in the years 2005, 2006 and 2007.

One of our readers, Jonolan, observed that we cannot use GDP: yes, it’s almost true, but we used corporations’ revenues also.

In 1996 Steve Gorelick made a similar list by using GNP instead of GDP, and profits. But we’re analyzing economy: we want to consider revenues and GDP.

In “Of the world’s 100 largest economic entities, 51 are now corporations and 49 are countries” compiled by Sarah Anderson and John Cavanagh of the of the Institute for Policy Studies in their Report on the Top 200 corporations released in December 2000, they considered GDP and sales.

As you can read from Wikipedia about sales: Sales are the activities involved in selling products or services in return for money or other compensation. It is an act of completion of a commercial activity.

The “deal is closed”, means the customer has consented to the proposed product or service by making full or partial payment (as in case of installments) to the seller.

Academically, selling is thought of as a part of marketing, however, the two disciplines are completely different. Sales often forms a separate grouping in a corporate structure, employing separate specialist operatives known as salespersons (singular: salesperson). Sales is considered by many to be a sort of persuading “art”. Contrary to popular belief, the methodological approach of selling refers to a systematic process of repetitive and measurable milestones, by which a salesperson relates his offering of a product or service in return enabling the buyer to achieve his goal in an economic way.

What is the difference between revenue, income, and gain?

You can read here that Revenue is the amount earned from a company’s main activities such as selling merchandise or providing services.

A gain results from a peripheral activity, such as selling the old delivery truck. A gain is the amount received that is in excess of the asset’s carrying amount (book value). For example, if the company receives $3,000 for the truck, and its carry amount was $600, the company will report a gain of $2,400.

Income is sometimes used instead of the word revenue: some people refer to the rent they receive as rent income. Generally, accountants use the word income to mean “net of revenues and expenses.” For example, a retailer’s income from operations is sales minus the cost of goods sold minus operating expenses.

The terms Revenue and Income are often used in reporting earnings. What is the difference? 

Audrey W. answered that Revenue (sometimes called sales) refers to all the money a company takes in from doing what it does — whether making goods or providing services. Other sources of funds — including investment gains — are usually labeled as such but also included as revenue. (Occasionally, you’ll see this number referred to as “gross income.”)

For these reasons we can make the same statistics made by Sarah Anderson and John Cavanagh in 2000 about the top economies entities in the world. 

If you don’t want to read all these lists, we suggest you to go to the end of this article, where there are interesting results on strange behaviour of world economies… which sound like conspiracy and manipulation

You can find the following numbers and many others in the pdf file that we created for you: Corporations and world economies numbers and statistics.

Analysis of result

Does it seem to be strange, isn’t it? Kassandra made other statistics for you. What do we find? The following graph:

Number of corporations in world economies, 2005 to 2007 statistics

Wow! It’s incredible! The same behaviour in three different years! Quite strange… This graphs shows that the number of corporations remains the same. It doesn’t show that there are always the same corporations in the first 50, 100, etc, world economies, but it shows that there are ALWAYS the same number of corporations.

How can it be possible, in a world of economic disorder? We made the math instead of you, what do we find?

We have 100 corporations in the first 160 positions, over a total of 280 positions. So we must calculate the probability that a set of 100 elements is in the first 160 positions.

We must consider the combinations with repetitions of 100 elements in a set of 160 elements and then divide the result for the combinations with repetitions of 100 elements in a set of 280 elements.

What does it means? Suppose that you have 10 balls in a box: 7 red and 3 blue. Suppose you want to know the probability that in anyway you select 5 random balls, you’ll have 3 blue balls. If you add a number to each ball, you must consider all the combinations with repetitions of 3 blue balls in 5 extractions from the box and divide them by the combinations with repetitions of 3 blue balls over ALL the extraction.

If now you consider 100 corporations instead of the 3 numbered blue balls and 280 economies instead of 10 balls and the first 160 positions instead of the first 5 extractions, you’ll reach our result!

Which result? The probability to obtain that behaviour is 3.6*10^-18 %. What? In decimal digits: 0.0000000000000000036 %. It’s almost the same probability to be destroyed from an asteroid in the next 100 years!

You must know that these are valid results only if we consider that there isn’t any relationship between corporations of year 2005 and those of 2006 or 2007. So we must expect a real constraint to combinations, based on strategies, relationships, and so on.

In that case the probability will grow, and we need a goo economist to say “how many” it grows: we can only say that there’ll be less zeros than before… but you could be sure that there’ll be too many zeros!

Mmmm… Did I say that the first seven economies are always the same countries, in the same positions? And that the first 15 economies are always the same countries, a little scrambled?

It sounds like conspiracy… It seems that They decided already what the world economies must be.

Why? Because money and power is rounding… but they’re rounding among the same protagonists, who don’t want to make too evident Their game.

The Kassandra Project

It exists a website where there are reported archives about corporations crimes in these years. This website is the Corporate Crime Reporter and the top 100 is a copyright by Russell Mokhiber. We want to give you that list.

The 100 corporate criminals fell into 14 categories of crime: Environmental (38), antitrust (20), fraud (13), campaign finance (7), food and drug (6), financial crimes (4), false statements (3), illegal exports (3), illegal boycott (1), worker death (1), bribery (1), obstruction of justice (1) public corruption (1), and tax evasion (1).

Russell said that there is an emerging consensus among corporate criminologists.

And that emerging consensus is this: corporate crime and violence inflicts far more damage on society than all street crime combined.

The FBI estimates, for example, that burglary and robbery — street crimes — costs the nation $3.8 billion a year.

Compare this to the hundreds of billions of dollars stolen from Americans as a result of corporate and white-collar fraud.

Health care fraud alone costs Americans $100 billion to $400 billion a year.

The savings and loan fraud — which former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh called “the biggest white collar swindle in history” — cost us anywhere from $300 billion to $500 billion.

And then you have your lesser frauds: auto repair fraud, $40 billion a year, securities fraud, $15 billion a year — and on down the list.

Recite this list of corporate frauds and people will immediately say to you: but you can’t compare street crime and corporate crime — corporate crime is not violent crime.

Unfortunately, corporate crime is often violent crime.

The FBI estimates that, 19,000 Americans are murdered every year.

Compare this to the 56,000 Americans who die every year on the job or from occupational diseases such as black lung and asbestosis and the tens of thousands of other Americans who fall victim to the silent violence of pollution, contaminated foods, hazardous consumer products, and hospital malpractice.

These deaths are often the result of criminal recklessness. They are sometimes prosecuted as homicides or as criminal violations of federal laws.

And environmental crimes often result in death, disease and injury.

In 1998, for example, a Tampa, Florida company and the company’s plant manager were found guilty of violating a federal hazardous waste law. Those illegal acts resulted in the deaths of two nine-year-old boys who were playing in a dumpster at the company’s facility. For more information you can view details here.

Numbers: we give numbers about Killer Corporation and nobody can confute them.

Is it just our imagination or maybe these corporations violated human and civil rights; killed; corrupted; polluted the environment; exported illegally; bypassed antitrust; frauded and made financial crimes?

We could be fool, we could be an “army of one, of two” but they cannot private us of our freedom and of our rights. We must fight against them!

Well, look who’s still riding high: Six of the top ten companies on this year’s list are pumping petroleum, and three more are making vehicles that burn it. True, Wal-Mart (Charts, Fortune 500) regained its title as the world’s largest company, with $351.1 billion in revenue.And thanks to a global M&A boom that paid out $11 billion in fees, the securities industry grew 45% by revenue in 2006. That lifted Morgan Stanley (No. 61), Merrill Lynch (No. 70), and Goldman Sachs (No. 72) into the top 75 for the first time.

But the big story was oil. Exxon Mobil (Charts, Fortune 500) (No. 2), fueled by high crude prices, was again the most profitable company in the world ($39.5 billion). The refining industry overall represented more than 14% of the Global 500’s $21 trillion in total revenue. That rising tide of petrodollars lifted a Chinese company, Sinopec (No. 17), into the top 20 for the first time. But for tech companies like Apple (Charts, Fortune 500) (No. 367), up a phenomenal 125 places on the list, it’s still a long way to the top.

Not all of the old-economy companies are doing well. Ford Motor (Charts, Fortune 500) (No. 12) fell out of the top ten for the first time in the Global 500’s 13-year history. Its revenues shrank 10%, and losses totaled $12.6 billion, making it the losingest company on the list this year. General Motors (Charts, Fortune 500) (No. 5) lost money too, and BP saw its profits decline 1.5% in a year when crude prices remained high. But Asia’s largest company, Toyota (No. 6), moved up two places and saw its profits rise 16% as customers flocked to its fuel-efficient and hybrid cars. If current trends persist, it should surpass GM next year to become the world’s largest automaker by revenue.

Total revenues for the Global 500 rose 10.4%, to nearly $21 trillion, and net income went up 25.9%, to $1.5 trillion. Neither grew as quickly as the previous year, but the profit margin of 7% was the highest ever.

Big Oil might dominate the top ten, but money dominates the top 25. Ten of those are financial services firms, led by Netherland’s ING Group (No. 13), followed by Citigroup (Charts, Fortune 500) (No. 14). Wall Street took advantage of low interest rates and well-funded private-equity firms to consummate $3.8 trillion worth of deals last year. “This has caused a windfall for the industry,” says Matthew Albrecht, S&P’s chief investment-banking analyst. “The merger boom increased both advisory fees and debt-lending and underwriting fees.” One of the biggest beneficiaries: Goldman Sachs, which saw its profits jump 70% last year.

It wasn’t just Wall Street reaping the benefits. Retail banking had a great year globally. European banks completed some of the biggest mergers in the continent’s history. Italy’s UniCredit Group (No. 97), Spain’s Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (No. 163), and Germany’s Commerzbank (No. 216) all completed cross-border acquisitions. And Chinese banks, led by Industrial & Commercial Bank of China (No. 170), which boasted the world’s largest public offering in 2006, made a big splash. The Agricultural Bank of China (No. 277) saw its profits go up nearly fivefold as it cleaned up its balance sheet in preparation for a public listing.

In 1996 Steve Gorelick published a list of 100 top economies. Today The Kassandra Project will show a similar list based on these data:
