CAIRO BOOKS's Description
How should companies be organized? To whom should boards of directors be
responsible--shareholders, or a wider group of stakeholders? In this fiercely
competitive world we cannot judge our own system of corporate governance in
isolation; it must bear comparison with the best. The second edition of this
acclaimed and well-established book aims to do just that.
Since publication of the first edition interest in corporate governance has
greatly increased, codes have proliferated, and principles laid down nationally
and internationally. In Keeping Better Company , the author describes
developments in the system of corporate governance--both the business
environment and the particular structures of company organization--in five
major industrial countries: Germany, Japan, France, the USA, and the UK.
This second edition is fully revised, updated and expanded, and includes a new
conclusion looking at a number of ongoing issues in corporate governance, and
an appendix discussing the role of international organizations.
