Corporate Personhood, Limited Liability, and Double Taxation

Posted October 21st, 2011 by rawrob

The big objection to corporations is usually limited liability for shareholders. Now first let me mention that many non-attorney critics of this notion seem confused about what it means (and many attorneys also misapprehend it). They think the doctrine insulates a tortfeasor from liability even if he was negligent, so long as he is a shareholder.

California seeks to get between shareholders and corporations

Posted June 15th, 2010 by vagabondvet

"The bill, AB 919, would require corporations to deliver an annual report to shareholders detailing the company's political activities and expenditures.

Shareholders would be able to opt out of having their money used for those expenditures and would be reimbursed with a dividend."

This is absurd because people exercise their free expression through investing in companies. They delegate their speech to the corporation in exchange for profits, and the contract that is created gives the shareholder profits in exchange for letting someone manage their money.
