The Multinational Monitor is a bimonthly magazine founded by Ralph Nader in 1980. It is published by Essential Information. Although its primary focus is on analysis of corporations, it also publishes articles on labor issues and occupational safety and health, the environment, globalization, privatization, the global economy, and developing nations.

The magazine is non-profit and advertising-free.

Features

"The Top Ten Worst Corporations" is a feature published every November/December issue since 1992 and naming the top ten culprits of "corporate crime, negligence and dastardly behavior."

The 2005 list was BP, Delphi, DuPont, ExxonMobil, Ford, Halliburton, KPMG, Roche, Suez, and W.R. Grace; the 2006 list was Abbott, Altria, BAE, Boeing, FirstEnergy, Kroger, Massey Energy, Pfizer, Smithfield, and Wal-Mart.[1]

The "Lawrence Summers Memorial Award" is an award given each issue in satirical honor of Lawrence Summers, the Secretary of the Treasury under Bill Clinton and later President of Harvard University, given to companies that "take extraordinary leaps to justify unethical practices." The award refers to the infamous Summers memo written by Summers' aide Lant Pritchett in 1991, when Summers was the World Bank's Chief Economist. The memo advocated transferring toxic waste and pollution from developed countries to Least Developed Countries. (Summers later stated the memo was meant to be satire).
