Tillman and Indergaard discuss the recent corporate scandals that have gripped the U.S. public's interest, and argue that they represent the symptoms of a corporate governance problem that began back in the 1990s.
Robert H. Tillman and Michael L. Indergaard argue that corporate scandals are symptoms of a corporate governance problem that began in the 1990s as New Economy pundits claimed that advances in technology and business organization were changing the rules. A decade later, it looked more like a case of no rules as endless revelations of fraud in the wake of corporate bankruptcies. This book offers a path-breaking analysis of America's most urgent economic problem: a system that relies on self-regulation and the rancid politics that continue to support the short-term interests of financial elites over the long-term interests of most Americans.
