    selling pieces

    I want to say that corporate raiders create social costs when they sell a corporation in pieces ( i mean selling the assets of the firm. which will cease to exist) . what should I use " sell to pieces" "sell in pieces" etc.. . I mean i don't know which preposition should link pieces to sell in this case.

    It should be in. When used in this sense it can be understood to mean by means (expressing that something is done in a certain way).

    A) How will they sell the corporation?

    B) They will sell it in pieces.

    We are going to travel the world, but we will probably do it
    in seperate stages.

    I am not a teacher.
