'Companies should not be run in the interest of their owners'

In addition to numerous articles in journals and edited volumes, Ha-Joon Chang has published 13 authored books (four of them co-authored) and 9 edited books (six of them co-edited). His main books include The Political Economy of Industrial Policy (1994), Kicking Away the Ladder -- Development Strategy in Historical Perspective (2002), and Bad Samaritans -- Rich Nations, Poor Policies, and the Threat to the Developing World (2007), and 23 Things That They Don't Tell You About Capitalism (Penguin, 2010, and Bloomsbury USA, 2011).

3. 'Companies should not be run in the interest of their owners'
Dumbest comment ever by an alleged economist. Then why would anyone ever want to own a business?

5. Ha HA!
So you think Oxford University has "alleged" economists teaching?

Welcome to DU! Hope you like the dose of reality here. Must be a relief from the endless lies on all the repig sites you, just by chance, read. :rofl:

6. I think that workers should (by mandate) have
a controlling interest in their company.
Much like Europeans (I am not sure if it is a mandate there), then the company would be run to the capacity and goals of the controlling interests. It has worked for decades there (America helped design the system, under FDR) with Unions and shorter workdays, paid vacations, etc...

7. Adam Smith
a man grows rich by employing a multitude of manufacturers; he grows poor by maintaining a multitude of menial servants.
