Taft on corporations August 12, 2016Posted by Tomboktu in Business, Capitalism.
Michael Taft’s post on Tuesday on Broadsheet.ie is very interesting and worth a read. In the comments, he says that he hopes to do a series on this topic.
The question he asks is: who owns the company? The reality is that the stereotype of lots of little people and a few rich people putting their money in shares is no longer valid. That makes tracing who has control of the corporations that control so much of the world’s economy difficult to do.
As I say, well worth a read.
