Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power

Thursday, May 3, 2012 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM

Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power


With annual revenues equal to Norway's GDP and more lobbying money in D.C. than any other corporation, ExxonMobil might be the world's most powerful company; yet it is also one of the most secretive.

How did ExxonMobil grow to be more influential in some countries than the U.S. embassy? Who are the larger-than-life characters that led its meteoric rise?

Pulitzer Prize-winner Steve Coll is president of New America Foundation and a staff writer at The New Yorker. He was previously a foreign correspondent and editor at The Washington Post for 20 years. His books include The Bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century and Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001.

Speaker: Steve Coll
