Some nations are--and conglomerations of nations. But when Wal-Mart, for example, has more revenue than all but nine countries in the world, that's a lot of power. Plus, many of them are able to move their money and headquarters around to get away with certain things. The biggest corporations are pretty hard to beat.

YPF was privatized in 1993 and bought by Repsol from Spain which is currently the fifth largest company in Spain.

In 2012 51% of YPF was nationalized by Argentina.

I don't know if the President can be relected in Argentina but if she can then maybe she will nationalize other companies.

Unless of course, I am wrong and the corporations pour billions of dollars into the political campaign of the opossition.
