Political Determinants of Corporate Governance

Mark J. Joe

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the quality of corporate law and its importance. The important precondition to developing modern securities markets, and the industrial, technological wealth that goes with deep and vibrant securities markets is a foundation of highly developed corporate and securities law that protect minority stockholders from the rampages of dominant majority stockholders. If corporate law is good enough in technologically-advanced nations, ownership will diffuse away from concentrated ownership into dispersed stock markets.

Keywords:   corporate law, securities market, minority stockholders, corporate law protection
