    that if you don't allow limited liability structures that can attract passive investors you will have a country of mom and pop sized entities. You need to reach a critical mass, and economies of scale, to manufacturing complex things like cars and airplanes, or compete in world markets. Those companies need capital from passive investors.

      and it's also true is that almost all of these G20 countries regulate and control the excesses of their limited liability structures better than we.

    •  "Limited liability" (0+ / 0-)

      Means that the risk to the entity has some limit to it. That is, I suppose, why the investors will come.

      Since the liability has been somehow limited by legal means, then I think it would be appropriate to also limit the "personhood" by the same means.

      "Limited Personhood" would mean that the entity could not excercise religion or be involved in politics. Take that, Hobby Lobby!
