EP: Yes. It is. Their stocks are publicly traded. I realize that have no idea how finance works and are resorting to insults becuase you can't reationallt defend these theories that feed into yout conspiracy dreams, but at least try to understand the basics.
I resort to insults because the only thing you know how to do is insult anyone you don't agree with by calling them nut jobs. Sorry but that makes you an ass.
You are attempting to discredit a legitimate study with semantics. It may have been an unclear choice of words when they said "all of the ownership". The vast majority of these super-corporations were banks, in fact 49 of the top 50. When banks have your money they control that money. You have no say over what your deposited money is doing unless you specifically invest it in something. With stocks, unless you own a controlling interest, you have no say over what that company does or what policy it makes. The idea here is CONTROL. So, the study concludes that the top 147 companies all control each other which means they work towards a common interest: Themselves and what's good for them. It really doesn't matter if you believe its a "conspiracy" or not, the bottom line is that the end result simulates the product of the most well-organized conspiracy imaginable. To say it's an accident is just..... retardedly naive, to put it mildly.
So while you are arguing over bullshit and disrupting this thread and every other conspiracy thread like it, you aid and abet these motherfuckers. In addition, concealing or denying or suppressing evil makes you more complicitly guilty of the crimes than the criminals themselves. Evil can only happen when good people do nothing about it, and working diligently to cover up the crimes of the power elite only serves to keep good people from doing anything to stop them.
This is why I say, it doesn't matter if a person is deluded by a bunch of jackasses like the Watchtower, or YOU, because the end result is the same: Ignorant people working their fingers to the bone to fill the pockets of the select few... those you constantly defend and protect.
