pe important social processes that occur in modem societies —whether industrial or in currently industrializing societies —either originate in, or ^e strongly mediated by, formal organizations (Perrow, 198S:vii). Since World War II, a new and logically distinct organizational form — the transnational Corporation (TNC) — has arisen. With the ability to shift operations anywhere within a corporate domain that includes several countries, TNC's represent an extreme powerful organizational form. But in discussions and presentations about TNC s, communication relevant to their power and influence is sometimes inadequate. The purpose of this paper is to present a graphic illustration of the economic size of TNC's in order to facilitate communication and discussion about such organizations.
