As the world's multinational corporations grew, their profits began to rival
those of small countries. Soon they owned small countries and corporate
influence was felt at the highest level of world government. Smaller
corporations were swallowed up like plankton in the wake of three behemoth
mega-corporations, one U.S.-based, one Europe-based and one based in the Far
East. These became the only effective world government, unelected, undemocratic,
but controlling the lives of the people through commerce.
