What are the most major/famous mergers or acquisitions in the last 20 years? ?

Craig Roggow answers:

Well there was the Time Warner/AOL merger that changed Ted Turner’s life (you can read about it in his new book, Call Me Ted). There was the Ford/Volvo and Daimler Benz/Chrysler mergers also. There is the more recent JP Morgan/Wamu marriage which might be considered a merger, but it was more that the FDIC seized Wamu and sold it overnight to JP Morgan.
