The spate of corporate governance scandals in the US, Asia and Europe during the late 1990s has renewed interest in the role of corporations in society. International organizations such as the World Bank and OECD have come to recognize that corporate law plays an important role in economic development and GDP growth.
In this timely and important collection, Jonathan Macey presents the key papers that have influenced the development of corporate law scholarship. The collection includes 33 articles, dating from 1937 to 2004
The many topics covered include the foundations of the economics of corporate law, the corporation as a nexus of contracts, corporate law from a Coasean perspective, insider trading and jurisdictional competition. The articles and the editor’s authoritative introduction are essential readings for those with an interest in corporate law and its economic underpinnings.
