  • Only flaw I see is that a business has to simultaneously manage both of:

    1. Profit/Growth

    2. Cash Flow/Liquidity

    Because you need to pay for accountants and what not to maintain the company structure and issue/track shares, sharesware invokes cash flow issues.

    You'd need for there to be a way to deal with cash flow as well...
    • Ahh, you see that's where my meta-business plan comes in. :-)

      A motivated individual creates a software infrastructure which manages all of the share tracking and, possibly, the cash management for a small cut off the top. For the system to work, it must be largely automated. If the founder chooses such a service, then s/he needs only configure a share distribution policy to get started. Taxation is still a hurdle, of course.

      Cash flow is always a problem for any business. In the sharesware model, it is necessary that the business run on a very small overhead, or that the community be willing to devote some fraction of its income (pre-determined?) to business development.
