It's official. Hollywood is making a movie on Glencore founder, Marc Rich. Marc Rich was the most bad ass physical oiland one of the greatest businessmen to have ever existed. He did business with dictators, bribed politicians across the world, flew private jets with the Mossad helping him evade the US Authorities who wanted him for tax evasion. Some say he even hired prostitutes to make deals easier. He was a one man GDP and makes most kids with start-ups look cute today because Marc Rich built an empire like no other. From mines in Africa to oil from Iran, he had his foot in the door.
The legend will never die. He's long gone but worthy of a Hollywood movie. His presence can most effectively be felt through Glencore's activities today, a Fortune 500 goliath which used to be Marc Rich & Co.
