No, not Cara Ellison Corporation, which has been public for nine years. But the person. Me. Would you pay $10 for a share of Cara Ellison? How about $50? That means you would own a piece of anything I produced – a book, a movie, even my income.
The shareholder meetings would be rather riotous, I think.
The question reminded me of my periodic Enron positions, which encapsulates the idea perfectly. When I say I am long on Jeff Skilling I mean it: I want to be a part of whatever he does in the future. Ditto Rex Shelby, Joe Hirko, etc. etc.
So I wonder if it is possible to offer yourself up as a commodity, an investment vehicle, a bona fide product. What’s to stop it?
Jeff Skilling was able to create markets for anything. Surely there is a market for people themselves.
