    Fascinating graphics show who owns all the major brands in the world

    All the biggest product brands in the world are owned by a handful of corporation. Food, cleaning products, banks, airlines, cars, media companies... everything is in the hands of these megacorporations. These graphics show how everything is connected.

    Consumer goods

    In the supermarket—as you can see in the graphic at the top—Mondelez, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Nestlé, Pepsico, P&G, Johnson&Johnson, Mars, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg's, and Unilever own everything.

    Interesting link, even if it's a little out of date.

    ^ I posted that image because the other one was to small to see clearly. Not may changes there and it still makes a clear point.

    Yup, I work in the automotive industry so more or less understood the ties there, but when you look at the rest, it's really an eye opener.

    Let's just hope this makes it easier to stop working earlier in the future, my opinion there is quite a low percentage of the global population working themselves to death, while a quite high percentage have nothing to do.

    Anyway...

    Workaholics love to work, almost non-stop.

    Neurotics, the lot of them.

    I'm guessing you're referring to Oprah Winfrey. Got money, but not consumer products of any significance.

    You should take a look at this thread...

    The OP was automation will replace most jobs in the near future. A universal wage will be the only option.

    Regardless, most of those companies are in large part owned by Monsanto, ConAgra and Ajinomoto who own the US government.

    "Momentum" washes up on the shores of Teak Door!

    Automation will only replace most jobs that it's cheaper to do with automation than with throwing human bodies at a problem. Most robotics I've seen range from pretty flakey to occasionally flakey (I speak of cutting edge one-off 6-figure things and less expensive factory line things), and need a body of trained humans behind creating, improving, and supporting them and all the infra needed to support that. The same goes for all the human bodies you can alternatively throw at problems. QED, automation will not replace most jobs in the future; just the ones it needs to. The real issue is the growing technical divide... before it was just literacy, now you have to add in yet more layers of knowledge between people. Training all those kids in that stuff is likely to be an ever-growing business. The real tension and constraint on everything is the sheer Malthusian number of meatsacks in the world versus all the regulation preventing them from getting housing and infrastructure.

    Anyway, speaking of froth...

    Good OP

    Lucky I'm not a Brand Name Buyer.

    In Australia, the German company Aldi has gained a strong presence in Australia and challenging the larger Supermarket chains for the consumer dollar.

    They sell few of the Brand Names listed in the OP.


    One of the trends in retailing, well, at least in Australia, if to have the Supermarket branded offerings.

    Same as TESCO have their own.


    BTW ... I've known for some time that the Mars Corporation own Pedigree Pet Foods, who, quite interestingly source some of their product in Thailand.
