Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I deliberately didn't suggest nationalisation. It's too politically charged ('socialism') and won't necessarily change internal culture in the way that decapitation and worker management might.

In the USA we have a structure that fits the bill rather well as an end destination for decapitated corporations: the Employee Stock Ownership Plan. There are a number of outstanding corporations run under this formula.

Under the slogan "Better Dead Than Red (Or Nationalized)", nationalization without compensation makes sense. But if reinstalling usual Western regulations and government services of 40-50 years ago has a bad political charge of socialism, we are then helplessly too far on the way towards openly corporate government models.
