Author Topic: What is a corporation?  (Read 2455 times)

So, I see these large companies that make a lot of money. Some of them seem to have a lot of power. They tend to be called 'corporations'. What does that mean? What seperates a regular business from this so-called 'corporation'?

Thanks.

A regular business is founded on hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.

A corporation is founded on stolen nazi gold.

Fascist and coercive institutions that mimic the top-down bureaucratic model that grants them their power; Governments. Unlike Governments, though, corporations are *somewhat* regulated by the market, and they have limits to their power, whereas Governments do not, because Governments have a territorial monopoly, whereas the monopoly of a corporation has more to do with bribery, perhaps even some merit. It's relatively easy to compete with a corporation, whereas it's impossible to compete with a Government. I guess depending on how you look at it, a Corporation is a less advanced Government.

cor·po·ra·tion/ˌkôrpəˈrāSHən/Noun
1. A company or group of people authorized to act as a single entity (legally a person) and recognized as such in law.

Like I said, a fictional person, who acts as a shield for the actual people running the business.

A company that is seen by the government as a person, the main purpose of which is to limit the potential liability of the owners of the company to the amount invested in said company.
