John D. Rockefeller


John D. Rockefeller kurz vor seinem Tode                                                                                                 John D. Rockefeller(1839- 1937)

John D. Rockefeller, eine der legendären Gestalten der amerikanischen Wirtschaft, stieg Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts zum reichsten Amerikaner auf und sein Name entwickelte sich weltweit zu einem Synonym für Reichtum, ähnlich wie in Europa der Name Rothschild
Noch heute zählt die Familie mit einem Gesamtvermögen von 5 Mrd $ zu den allerreichsten Familien der Welt. Diverse Vergleiche, die den Geldwert der jeweiligen Zeit berücksichtigen, haben ergeben, daß John D. Rockefeller mit großem Abstand der reichste Mann war, der je in den USA gelebt hat.

1. Gründung der Standard Oil
Rockefeller besaß eine kleine Maklerfirma und kaufte 1866 als Grundstock 2 kleine Ölraffinerien/Cleveland auf, die seit 1867 als Rockefeller, Andrews & Flagler Co firmierten. Durch die Zusicherung eines gleichbleibenden Ölflusses für den Transport sicherte er sich günstige Frachttarife bei Eisenbahngesellschaften.
Rockefellers Vision war die Monopolisierung der noch jungen Ölbranche in den USA. Die erste Etappe war 1870 die Gründung der
Standard Oil Co. durch die Fusion von Raffinerien mehrerer Partner.
2. Beginnende Monopolisierung
In den Folgejahren vergrößerte sich der Konzern durch die Übernahme weiterer Ölfirmen und Raffinerien. Dabei erhielten die ehemaligen Besitzer eine Beteiligung an Standard Oil und profitierten damit von der steigenden Monopolisierung. Die rabiaten und oft skrupellosen Methoden zur Ausschaltung von Konkurrenten trugen zu dem sehr schlechten Ruf von Rockefeller bei. Kartellabsprachen, Aufkäufe durch Strohmänner, Dumpingpreise und illegale Methoden waren gängige Methoden beim Aufstieg.
3. Trust-Organisation
1872/73 kaufte Standard Oil insgeheim die 3 größten Raffinerien in Pittsburgh und Philadelphia auf, die dann ihre lokalen, Rockefeller-feindlichen, Konkurrenten übernahmen.
1879 kontrollierte die Standard Oil schließlich 90 % der Raffineriekapazität / USA.
1882 wurde schließlich der Standard Oil Trust als neue Rechtsform gegründet, mit 9 Treuhändern und 42 Hauptaktionären:
  • u.a. John D. Rockefeller (25 %), William Rockefeller, Archbold, Flagler, H. Rogers, O. Payne, Ch. Pratt.
4. Geldmaschine Standard Oil
Diese Führungsmannschaft bildete die potenteste Managerriege in den USA und schuf den 1. vertikal integrierten Großkonzern (1891 - 25 % d. Ölproduktion / USA).
Von 1893-1901 zahlte die Standard Oil (ab 1899 neue Dachorganisation Standard Oil of New Jersey) 250 Mio $ an Dividenden (25 % an John D. Rockefeller) und die Hauptaktionäre gehörten schon bald zu den allerreichsten Amerikanern.
5. Trennung des Imperiums
Die Reformperiode zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts führte zu harten Attacken der Öffentlichkeit gegen den "Kraken" Standard Oil, die schließlich zu einem Anti-Trustverfahren gegen den Konzern, der durch die aufkommende Motorisierung der Gesellschaft enorm profitierte, führten.
1911 wurde die Standard Oil (38 Firmen) schließlich in mehrere Gesellschaften aufgeteilt. Die neuen Konzerne wurden zwar getrennt, aber sie respektierten weiterhin gegenseitig ihre Märkte und arbeiteten zusammen, da z.B. die Familie Rockefeller weiterhin an den meisten neuen Konzernen beträchtliche Anteile besaß. Nach der Entflechtung stieg das Vermögen Rockefellers auf 900 Mio $ ( wegen Kursgewinnen der einzelnen Gesellschaften um das 2 bis 3 fache)


6. Stiftungen
Rockefeller zog sich schon Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts aus der aktiven Führung des Konzerns zurück, blieb aber letztlich die entscheidende Kraft.
Um seinen äußerst schlechten Ruf zu verbessern, gründete er schließlich eine Anzahl von Stiftungen, die heute noch zu den größten >Stiftungen der USA zählen und die ihn heute in erster Linie als Philanthropen erscheinen lassen.
Zusammen mit Andrew Carnegie gilt er als der größte amerikanische Philanthrop überhaupt.
Mit seinem Geld legte er u.a.den Grundstein für die Gründung der Uni/Chicago, mit der die Familie auch heute noch eng verbunden ist.
Von seinen Nachfahren war keiner mehr aktiv in den Ölindustrie tätig. Stattdessen wirkten sie sehr erfolgreich in anderen Wirtschaftsbranchen, in der Politik sowie in der Philanthropie.
