Co-operatization of large companies
This is a possible solution to the problems of corporate unaccountability.
All corporations above a certain size should be co-operatively owned by the public, who would then receive:
- quarterly profit dividends
- voting rights in board elections
This wouldn't have to be a hard line; the level of public ownership chould increase in a progression something like this, as the reach of the company's economic and ecological impacts increase:
- neighborhood / community (where the company operates and does business)
- town / county
Roughly, anyone who is measurably affected by the company's operations should have an ownership stake. If possible, stake size should be proportional to the degree of affectedness.
