Transatlantic Corporate Governance Dialogue

Annual Conference organised by the European Corporate Governance Institute, the Brookings Institution and Columbia Law School, with support from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the European Commission

17 September 2009, Securities Exchange Commission, Washington DC   

The New Role of Government in Corporate Governance. For the first time in its history, the US holds major ownership stakes in large companies and is playing an increasingly active role in their governance. The same phenomenon is present in EU member states. In both the US and the EU, there is growing momentum in favour of a much expanded regulatory outlook that extends well beyond the banking sector and into areas of corporate governance, especially executive pay. What should be the government’s role in corporate governance, both in the companies now government-owned, and through regulation in the economy generally?

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks|
