What is an owner? And, what is an owner of a publicly traded corporation? It’s clear that they are not the same thing. We don’t own a corporation like we own a car or property. Even individual owners of corporate stock don’t really “own” the corporations. We have neither the rights nor responsibilities commonly associated with the term ownership.
Years ago I was interviewed for a documentary called The Corporation. A new documentary has been made using some of that old footage and I thought I’d share it with you. See what you think and look for me at about 12:35.
