Keasey / Thompson / Wright Corporate GovernanceThere is little doubt that corporate governance has become one of the key issues for students of business management in the 1990s. This text is the first to draw together the various strands of the debate from economics, finance, and accounting perspectives, and from an international angle that includes discussion of the issues as they relate to governance in the UK, USA, Germany, Japan, and Eastern Europe. The editors identify four main approaches to Corporate Governance. These approaches can be divided into four models:The Principal-Agent or Finance Model; The Myopic-market Model (short-termism); The Abuse of Executive Power; and The Stakeholder Model. Topics covered include: the role of institutional investors the corporate board the market for corporate control management buy-outs and venture capital regulation and auditing governance in the public sector This will be an essential purchase for anyone studying corporate governance whether on an undergraduate degree or MBA.
This book provides an overview of corporate governance issues for students and practitioners. Chapters are written by well informed academics in various disciplines, and the book covers the public sector and the international dimension (Europe and the USA) from the overlapping of economics, finance, and accounting.
