Ron, this brings up a good idea. Let's make stockholders employees, at
least for some time. This is probably a very effective way for them to
udnerstand that the employee really has a "greater investment" in the
company than the stockholders. The typical stockholder (even whe she or
he might be an employee in some other company/org.) invests his or her
money and go back to his or her regular activities, and waits (expects) a
"good" dividend for the money! The employees invests years of his or her
life, efforts, skills, ... and hopes! This is a very long process which
takes a lot of energy.
