The Big Nickel

Inco at Home and Abroad

By Jamie Swift  

The Big Nickel
  • Paperback / softback

Inco is the World’s largest producer of nickel. This gripping account of the corporation is an essential contribution to an understanding of concentrated economic power, how it operates in Canada and the Third World, and its human consequences.

  • Paperback / softback, 173 pages
  • ISBN 9780919946057
  • Published October 1977


Unlike many other muck-raking studies of transnationals that have appeared in recent years, The Big Nickel avoids the trap of merely moralising about the nasty practices and habits of capitalist giants like INCO.

– Roger Rolfe, New Internationalist

[This book] will be of special interest to the student of Canadian labour history and industrial development. However, its real importance, I think, is in the human dimension of the issues that the authors portray quite effectively.

– Wayne McAuley, Calumet
