Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem lies both in the Limited Liability of directors and the non-liability of shareholders (limited to their investment).

If shareholders owning a significant proportion of a company (say over 10%) were required to co-sign (i.e. give personal guarantees of company debts) the entire corporate responsibility dynamic would change.

No matter that 'personal' would, in many cases, be a corporation - the same rules would apply within the investing corporate body, and so on ad infinitum.

You can't be me, I'm taken
