      Indians have an irrational hate of the Brits, but in its heyday the DUTCH East India company was truly a monster company.

      There's no hate for the Brits. It's not the citizens of UK who are responsible for the crimes of the empire.
      But I don't expect you to understand. There is no way to explain to someone the atrocities committed over 400 yrs. You probably feel that jews have irrational hate for Hitler.

      Do you have the same hate for the Mughals? Or being colonized by them was somehow a better thing?

      I'm sure it sucks to be colonized but the reality is it was also a path that eventually led to democracy, which is really the only form of rule that doesn't suck. Not sure the Mughals would have got you there.

      Here in America we kicked them out in 1776, btw.

    None if these are franchises. If you are just looking for largest businesses in the world you are missing the historical ones like east India trading which was a 2 to 3 trillion dollar business.
