Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most of the transnats wouldn't survive two seconds of determined trust-busting. Most of them are monopolies and oligopolies on the style of the railroad robber barons.

And besides, any company with a turnover equivalent to the GDP of a moderately sized African republic needs to be either nationalised, broken into itty bitty pieces or taken out behind the woodshed and shot. To prevent it from buying politicians like they were toy cars, for no other reason.
