La empresa de participación: características que la definen. Virtualidad y perspectivas en la sociedad de la información

A participation company is a company in which one acquires the condition of shareholder, whether formally or informally, to play a leading role in the process which characterises any company - the production and distribution process. This type of company “embodies” the restitution of democracy – one person, one vote – to the market, to the economic field, in the same way in as, at least on paper, occurs in the political sphere. The basis of this affirmation must be sought in the following process: the more one consciously participates in what one does, the more one demands participation in that which one wants to do, in the setting of objectives.
