Political Determinants of Corporate Governance

Mark J. Joe

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the proposition that before a nation can produce, it must achieve social peace. The first section discusses two political foundations to the firm. First, before serious economic activity can take place, social and economic conflict must be minimized, and the ways modern societies have minimized it can affect, and have affected, the structure of the modern corporation. Second, under one modern and widespread political condition, ownership can not easily separate from control, and the truly public firm can not dominate business. The second section considers the variety of ways and persistence in distancing shareholders from employees.

Keywords:   social peace, shareholder control, social democracy, public firm, employees
