I've never had enough money to play the markets, and I'll admit I don't really know what they are. I always viewed the market as a game. You buy trading cards, and with random perceptions, your cards value could increase. I wonder if someone could help me with corporate structure. It puzzles me that stocks are viewed as ownership. Whoever buys the most wins, right. So if someone in China decides hey, I'd like a fortune 500 company, and I'm filthy rich, I'll just buy ownership? So do top stock holders sit on a board and pay the CEO who makes half a billion a year? Isn't that chaotic. Wouldn't ownership be fluid? Who creates a company they do not own? I apologize for my ignorance, but I'm curious how the game works. You have to love games where if you lose, you take a swan dive off a tall building.
