If a publicly traded company buys back all it's shares from the public, majority holder and every last person that owns it's shares who would own the company? Obviously, it wouldn't be a normal privately owned entity because all it's shares are owned by the company itself hence the company owns itself. So, who will act as the decision maker of the company and who will get the voting rights of the shares? Because a corporation is technically a person but not a physical person at the same time. it has the necessary rights to own itself but it won't be able to think and make decisions. So, how will such a company function?
