The Unincorporated Man by Dani and Eytan Kollin
In the future, everyone is incorporated and can buy/sell shares in their own economic lives. Fans of stock market histories would see the setup for market manipulations, lawyers would see problems with bankruptcy ( can't really throw out mgmt, can we? ), and libertarians would perhaps rejoice.
While we monetize a bit of our future by taking on student loans, that is probably micro-pennies compared to the present value of our future earnings, which would be securitizable via personal incorporation. The inflation due to this would be similar to the shutdown of the 2nd Bank of the United States and the start of the Free Banking system, when all of a sudden anyone with a bank charter could start printing money.
The hangover from that party would wreck more than a few economic lives. The resultant personal bankruptcies, under current corporate law, would allow creditors to wipe out the current shareholders. Debt and equity would most likely become a much more serious matter as the stakes are much higher; shareholders could sue for uneconomic decisions (force you to take that higher paying and less fun job), and for disgorging of bank accounts to fund dividends.
We would probably see Delaware expand its management-friendly laws to personal incorporations, to make shareholder lawsuits less likely to succeed, and people more likely to maintain control.
This libertarian paradise makes for a fun thought experiment. The authors attempts to handle market manipulations (no short selling, no uneconomic decisions) seem misplaced. If we're building a libertarian paradise, why not go all the way?
