Might it be possible to organize a company that held shares on behalf of 
shareholders such that customers got one share for each dollar spent with the 
company during the year. You get to vote the shares allotted to you due to 
your purchases at the agm that determines dividends. (Very rough idea here.)

There would be no shares held by anyone else. Just this customer pool.

all the best,
