This chapter addresses company (corporate) law, challenging the disciplinary demarcations between corporate and workplace organization. Examining recent proposals to accord employees status as corporate ‘stakeholders’ and similar initiatives, it questions whether such strategies are truly ‘transformative’ or merely ‘ameliorative’. Concluding that the very legitimacy of the corporate share as a form of property must be challenged, the discussion calls for a reconceptualization of the corporation as a social institution.
