    Default Bayerische Motoren Werke AG

    Watched a rather interesting programme on Bayerische Motoren Werke AG but it did not say what the AG was for or what it meant. Does anybody know?

    Thanks for your help.

    The full name of the company is BMW AG. “AG” stands for Aktiengesellschaft. This shows the brand is an incorporation owned by shareholders.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Thanks for that, zqwerty. Very interesting. I see that Aktiengesellschaft translates as public company - owned by shareholders as you say.
