Proposed merge of Aktiengesellschaft into Joint-stock companyEdit
The German article de:Aktiengesellschaft is treated as a synonym/sibling article for Joint-stock company, not an independently notable concept. Existing content can be merged to the appropriate section of the Joint-stock company article and later split summary style as needed. czar 19:20, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
- Oppose: the article is already in summary style, and that structure seems to work well. Klbrain (talk) 09:26, 4 September 2021 (UTC)
- Oppose: We have articles for other country-specific public company variants (Public limited company, Société Anonyme, OJSC), and Aktiengesellschaft seems deserving of an article as well. Stonkaments (talk) 21:22, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
- Oppose: This is about German Joint-stock company, not US Joint-stock companies. Telecine Guy (talk) 19:47, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
Has three no votes as of April 2022, started in February 2021.! This is no. Telecine Guy (talk) 19:52, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
Historical context of joint stock companiesEdit
This article makes out that China and some European countries had joint stock companies in the medieval period. This misrepresents the nature and liabilities of a joint stock company. There are no specific distinctions made of this kind in the article. It simply states, 'The earliest records of joint-stock companies appear in China...' This renders the definition of the joint stock company meaningless. There is then some attempt to define joint ventures and joint ownership agreements in Europe in the thirteenth century which have nothing to do with enterprise trade, limited liability or operational autonomy. These simply are NOT joint stock companies. The first joint stock company was the Muscovy company in England. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:04, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

Description of Limited LiabilityEdit
Perhaps I've misunderstood the concepts, but shouldn't the following sentence,
Without limited liability, a creditor would probably not allow any share to be sold to a buyer at least as creditworthy as the seller.
Without limited liability, a creditor would probably not allow any share to be sold to a buyer unless the buyer is at least as creditworthy as the seller.
