Interesting read, thanks for that!

Do I really need three countries, though? Wouldn't "three entities" be more accurate? Two countries plus one CEO should work, right? I`m thinking of having 40% each in investment funds and 20 in my CEO. It'll be a boatload of work, but I guess that just means I should start early.

The scenario you present assumes the corp is not present in either of your countries. Investment funds cannot invest in a corp located in its own country. Your country could invest in such a corp, but it would have control if you pushed its ownership past your CEO. You would control closer to 25/25/40, or 90% of such a corp to keep it truly public.

The other difficult part is that two countries will likely run out of investment fund cash much more quickly. An aggressive policy of creating truly public corps drains their cash very fast.

Yeah, right, missed those things and in fact ran into those already. Oh well, time to step up my war game, I guess.

I have a number of corps in my own countries with ownership that is 24.99% my corp, 24.98% my country (yes I balance it that exact) and the remainder the investment shares from my second country. I have these in both my countries so that both investment shares get used.
