Corporations hold huge influence over every citizen; this book offers a visionary plan to give citizens influence over corporations - and earn some supplemental income too. It envisions the creation of a national mega-mutual fund fueled by donations rather than taxes or government mandates. All citizens over eighteen would be entitled to a share in the fund, enabling them to both weigh in on corporate governance and receive a dividend. This is a big idea, but it's also highly practical, using the tools of capitalism to keep corporations accountable to the public good.
