phyzz's Journal: Companies and their stockholders

Journal by phyzz

In my opinion a stockholder should not have so much control over the company.

The company should have to report to regulators when applicable, the clients, the staff and then the creditors, in that order. That way a company looks first to its customers, where to find them and how to please them (in the limits fixed by the regulator), then to its workforce to optimize their work and be competitive (in the limits fixed by the regulator), and only then to people who have only money in the business.

But nowadays it seems it is:
(1) investors
(2) top management
(3) politics
(4) public relations
(5) ...
(6) ...
(7) staff
(8) customers
(9) regulators

Disclaimer: I do understand that cash is as precious for a company as air for an individual (corporations are NOT people) and that in some situations bond emissions are preferable to bank lending.
