Looking behind the scenes of multinational corporations (MNC), we find that in many cases they appear as either heroes or monsters, great people or fraudsters. For the sake of truth, we cannot be silent about the significant merits of Rockefeller, as we cannot overlook the fact that he is guilty of blackmail and corruption, that Deterding financed Nazism which gave rise to Hitler, that some oil magnates have plotted a series of assassinations, bearing the plight of annihilation of many progressive political people, that during the Second World War, they unscrupulously supplied the belligerents of both camps, their primary goal being to get as much profits as possible. The magnates that lead multinational corporations are certainly not saints. Scruples do not hinder them and, as their interests dictate, they raise or lower prices; tighten or relax competition; they do not welch to conclude more or less legal cartels, to conduct more or less moral maneuvers, to fraud the tax system; to resort to bribery, corruption, blackmail. Undoubtedly, those companies are real powers, true states inside a state, able to exert pressure on governments and finance coup d'états, conceiving plots and conduct assassinations. Can we conclude that multinational corporations have been and are the masters of the universe that have imposed their will and law? Reality is not so simple.
