Hey, here’s a novel idea. What if the Home Shopping Network suddenly owned a major credit bureau? You’d certainly trust those folks with your financial future, surely. Well, enter England’s home shopping colossus, the Great Universal Stores group of companies. They now own Experian outright, one hundred percent, down to the last toilet. And, with that, the “vital American institution” notion is forever flushed away. Experian was originally formed when two other monolithic consumer reporting entities, TRW and Chilton, combined, then bought every other similar business they could in California, Texas, and other western states, and finally sold itself to those happy home shopping Brits whose other major business is Kays.com (slogan: “making life easier”). Experian is now located in Allen Texas.
