Summary:
Five companies dominate the U.S. petroleum industry. Five control the world-wide trade in grain. Two have a corner on the private market for drinking water. In terms of actual dollars, trade in heroin, cocaine, and tobacco ranks alongside that in grain or metals. There are more slaves in the world today than ever before. Resource-by-resource, It's All for Sale uncovers and discloses who owns, buys, and sells what.
