We are starting to do more analysis of the Global 5000 companies and have built an industry hierarchy. Here are a few counts / tidbits. There are 103 Telecom companies represented among the 5000. And another 212 Technology firms.

183 are classified in Health Care and 435 in Financial Services.

Any question as to why the current economic troubles are so inter-twined with big finance? And how finance is the center of what needs to be fixed for the global economies to run well.
