World's Top 10 Largest Corporations

Well, in the midst of exams, I'm pretty sure a large bunch of us lose touch with world concepts... Came across this Fortune magazine in my sister's home.. And these are the world's top 10 largest corporations:

1. Wal-Mart Stores
2. Exxon Mobil
3. Royal Dutch Shell
4. BP
5. General Motors
6. Toyota Motor
7. Chevron
8. DaimlerChrysler
9. ConocoPhillips
10. Total

The countries who were top in revenue were almost the same in 1996 and 2006, with US being first and Japan being second. But Singapore made it to 32 compared to nowhere in 1996. And it would seem US has gotten a larger share of the pie of the world's revenues.. China? made it from 16th to 7th.. its the fastst developing country..

Well just a little thought in the midst of exams.. Exams aren't everything.. These world issues are more important...
