Thomas Porcher

9,90 €
Did you know that lower oil prices are almost never passed on fairly at the pump? That oil companies sacrifice their own refineries? That they do not pay taxes, manipulate information and arrange between themselves to avoid any competition? The announcement of the profits of the oil companies, in the first place Total, arouses each year reactions of admiration or indignation on the part of observers, experts and French politicians. But what do these numbers hide? Thomas Porcher unveils eight scandalous practices of the gas giants. The goal: to encourage collective denunciation and vigilance, which alone will lead governments to act for the good of citizens.
