About this product
- DescriptionExecutives, investors, and the business press routinely chant the mantra that corporations are required to maximize shareholder value. In this pathbreaking book, rewned corporate expert Lynn Stout debunks the myth that corporate law mandates shareholder primacy. Stout shows how shareholder value thinking endangers t only investors but the rest of us as well, leading managers to focus myopically on short-term earnings; discouraging investment and invation; harming employees, customers, and communities; and causing companies to indulge in reckless, sociopathic, and irresponsible behaviors. And she looks at new models of corporate purpose that better serve the needs of investors, corporations, and society.
- Author BiographyLynn Stout is the Marc and Beth Goldberg Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at Cornell Law School. Her work on corporate theory was cited by Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens in his dissent in Citizens United.
