520    In this book the author goes deep inside ExxonMobil Corp, 
       the largest and most powerful private corporation in the 
       United States. He investigates the notoriously secretive 
       ExxonMobil Corporation, revealing the true extent of its 
       power. ExxonMobil's annual revenues are larger than the 
       economic activity in the great majority of countries, 
       equivalent to the GDP of Norway. In many of the countries 
       where it conducts business, ExxonMobil's sway over 
       politics and security is greater than that of the United 
       States embassy. In Washington, ExxonMobil spends more 
       money lobbying Congress and the White House than any other
       corporation. Yet despite its outsized influence, it is a 
       black box.
