John D. Rockefeller was the founder of the Standard Oil Company. His establishment controlled about 90 percent of US refineries and pipelines in the early 1880s. As he started to modify his business he then moved his oil wells westward for new endeavors. Entering foreign markets in Europe, Asia, and Latin America, Rockefeller had become one of the richest persons in the world because of his dominance in the oil and railroad industries. His wealth and success made him a target for journalists and politicians who saw him as a sign of corporate greed and criticized his methods. In the late 1930s, a quote was published concerning him, his methods, and his way to success: “He was accused of crushing out competition, getting rich on rebates from railroads, bribing men to spy on competing companies, of making secret agreements, of coercing rivals to join the Standard Oil Company under threat of being forced out of business, building up enormous fortunes on the ruins of other men, and so on”

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
