The East India Company: The original corporate raiders http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/mar/04/east-india-compa...?
"One of the very first Indian words to enter the English language was the Hindustani slang for plunder: “loot”. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, this word was rarely heard outside the plains of north India until the late 18th century, when it suddenly became a common term across Britain. To understand how and why it took root and flourished in so distant a landscape, one need only visit Powis Castle." ‎· maitani
I thought the very first corporate raiders were the Knights Templar, and they sure did a whole lot of raiding ‎· SaeedTheGiraffe ?
