Legal Treatment of Foreign Investment: "The World Bank Guidelines"

Front Cover
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1993 M10 27 - 468 pages
Corporation law dates from the 19th century when the growth of business enterprise required a division between the private & the company sphere, making the company a legal person with its own rights, responsibilities & liabilities. The company was no longer the legal equivalent of its owner but became a separate legal entity, providing a form of legal protection for the owners, employees & the customers. The introduction of company law meant a great step forward for those engaged in big business in Europe, the U.S. & elsewhere.
