Corporate Governance: Overview, Case Studies, and Reforms

William O. Fisher, University of Richmond


Corporate Governance: Overview, Case Studies, and Reforms provides a broad view, with chapters identifying principal governance participants and sources of existing law. The book also provides a focused view, with extensive excerpts from investigations of WorldCom, Enron, and Lehman―as well as documents from WorldCom and Enron. It includes Sarbanes-Oxley reforms, including those targeted on auditors. It covers the credit crisis―its causes, government control at companies receiving financial assistance, and new law and regulatory action emerging from that crisis, including regulation of compensation in the financial industry. The book quotes significant passages from laws, regulations, and listing standards―all integrated into explanatory text. And it includes summaries of finance and economics studies on governance issues appearing in journals published for those disciplines. -
