0888625146 626 pages. Glossary. "Highlights from the State of Competition in the Canadian Petroleum Industry - the government report that alleges monopoly practices by Canada's big oil companies." - from front cover. "Compiled from the more than 135,000 secret oil company documents that were seized by government investigators in raids between 1973 and 1978.... Shows that the oil companies purposely restricted competition, worked together to keep prices and profits up, and sacrificed Canadian interests when they were told to do so by their foreign parents." - from back cover. Considering that Esso sounds eerily like an acronym for the Rockefeller's Standard Oil (S.O.) readers of this work will also surely be interested in the early writings of Ida Tarbell and her revelations about the methods of that company and its founder, J.D. Rockefeller. Has anything changed?
