Hard Working?

A very large private corporation with a handful of shareholders. Its privacy protections abound, especially for foreign operations. Known for inventing the primary tool used in manipulating energy prices.

Compare this with the largest public company (by street valuation). Widely held with at least thousands if not millions of individual shareholders. Well known to half of US homes.

Because of their size, each company has a large influence on the majority of citizens. As a citizen and other things being equal, which would you trust more? Which is more accountable for the consequences of its behavior? Why?
