    And how does a company get to be this huge without many people noticing ?

    Really? I'd like to know how many Americans have ever heard of BLK . I bet that Fink dude makes a lot of business trips to China.

    They are very well known in the financial industry.

    There are several firms with other $1 trillion in assets. Most of Blackrock's assets are mostly in ETFs, which are passive investments. They are meant to replicate indexes provided by vendors such as Standard & Poor's and MSCI.

    Considering that most pols in D.C. are corrupt pieces of shit, and employees of this corporations are part of the revolving door, they are part of the problem, not the solution. They only make laws that benefit them and theirs, not what is good for the nation.

    They all need to be led to the guillotine.
