Posts per trillion dollars on the world’s five largest corporations

Finding a new listing of the global Fortune 500, I took a quick look at how many posts I have published about the top five.

Wal-Mart = 11 (See my post of Nov. 6, 2005: fixed-fee arrangements; Sept. 22, 2005: Wal-Mart and its minority relationship partners; July 29, 2007: diversity quotas among its outside counsel; Dec. 3, 2005: conference for its key law firms; Sept. 22, 2005: Wal-Mart legal’s rapid growth; May 28, 2007: most diverse law department in America; June 4, 2007 #1: rapid growth of the department; June 4, 2007: customized its I-9 software; Dec. 5, 2007: clamp down on law-firm rate increases; Jan. 1, 2008: travel policies for outside counsel; Feb. 6, 2008: subsidiary uses a Brazilian matter management system.).

Exxon Mobil = 0

Royal Dutch Shell = 3 (See my post of Dec. 14, 2005: approximately 650 lawyers worldwide (excluding tax lawyers) with offices in over 50 countries; Dec. 23, 2005: Royal Dutch Shell’s three levels of assignments; and May 27, 2007: wholesale repotting of lawyers.)

Toyota Motor = 0

According to Fortune, July 21, 2008 at 165, these five corporations, the largest by revenues in the world, had total revenues of $1.58 trillion. I’m not impressed; they only had 8.3 blog posts per trillion dollars.
