This is the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Businesses are structured in different ways to meet different needs. The simplest form of business is called an individual proprietorship. The proprietor owns all of the property of the business and is responsible for everything. This means that the proprietor gets to keep all of the profits of the business but also must pay any debts. The law recognizes no difference between the owner and the business.

Another kind of business is the partnership. Two or more people go into businesss together. An agreement is usually needed to decide how much of the partnership each person controls. There are limited liability partnerships. These have full partners and limited partners. Limited partners may not share as much in the profits but they also do not have as many responsibilities. Doctors, lawyers and accountants often form partnerships to share the profits and risks of doing business. A husband and wife can form a business partnership. Partnerships can end at any time. But the partnerships and individual proprietorships exist only as long as the owners are alive.

The most complex kind of organization is the corporation. Corporations are designed to have an unlimited life time. Corporations can sell stock as a way to raise money. Stock represents shares of ownership in the company. Investors who buy stock can trade their shares or keep them as long as the company is in business. A company might use some of the earnings to pay dividend as a reward to shareholders. Or it might re-invest the money into the business. If shares lose value, investors can lose all of the money they paid for their stock. But shareholders are not responsible for the debts of the corporation.

A corporation is recognized as an entity. Its owner legal being seperates from its owners. A board of directors controls corpora policies. The directors appoint top company officers. The directors might or might not hold shares in the corporation. Corporations can have a few major shareholders or ownership can be spread among the general public. But not all corporations are traditional businesses that sell stock. There are none profit groups that are also organized as corportions.

And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report, written by Mario Ritter. You can learn more about business and economics by downloading transcripts and mp3 files of our reports at voaspecialenglish.com. I'm Faith Laptus.
