The events that began with the collapse of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, and Adelphia and continued into the financial crisis of 2008 teach us an important lesson: corporate governance matters. But although it is now widely acknowledged that good corporate governance is a linchpin of good corporate performance, a significant debate remains over exactly how to improve corporate governance and its impact on corporate and overall economic performance. This book offers a uniquely diverse and forward-looking set of approaches from leading experts, covering the major areas of corporate governance reform and analysing the full range of issues and concerns. This volume offers a host of innovative and original suggestions on how corporate governance can continue to improve. Written to be both theoretically rigorous and grounded in the real world, the book is well suited for practising lawyers, managers, lawmakers, and analysts, as well as academics conducting research or teaching a wide range of courses in law schools, business schools, and economics departments.
