Private empire [ExxonMobil and American power]

Steve Coll

Sound recording - 2012

In this book the author goes deep inside ExxonMobil Corp, the largest and most powerful private corporation in the United States. He investigates the notoriously secretive ExxonMobil Corporation, revealing the true extent of its power. ExxonMobil's annual revenues are larger than the economic activity in the great majority of countries, equivalent to the GDP of Norway. In many of the countries where it conducts business, ExxonMobil's sway over politics and security is greater than that... of the United States embassy. In Washington, ExxonMobil spends more money lobbying Congress and the White House than any other corporation. Yet despite its outsized influence, it is a black box.
