Where exactly did this figure come from? Doing a search for "billion" does not pull up any posts whatsoever on this site.(search engine faulty right now?)
Do you realize that if that figure is correct, the Society is worth almost as much as GE, Microsoft, and Walmart COMBINED? I find it somewhat hard to believe myself. But if someone could point me to indisputible records showing this 'mktcap,' then I will be totally floored, to say the least.
