Heavy Mittal? A State within a State: The inequitable Mineral Development Agreement between the Government of Liberia and Mittal Steel Holdings NV

It is also a case study of a well-established pattern of behaviour by transnational corporations (TNCs) around the world: to maximise profit by taking advantage of a regulatory void, which allows TNCs to structure their trade and investment policies through capital flight and aggressive tax avoidance or tax reduction strategies.
