Political Determinants of Corporate Governance

Mark J. Joe

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the analysis of the effect of the quality of corporate law on separation. High-quality protective corporate law is a good institution for a society to have. It lowers the cost of building strong, large business enterprises. It can prevent controlling stockholder diversions, a necessary condition for separation. But among the world's wealthier nations, it does not primarily determine whether it is worthwhile to build those enterprises. It is a tool, not the foundation. American-style populism and European-style social democracy are different sides of the same political coin. The polity pays up to affect corporate governance institutions. The differences have deeply affected corporate governance, militating toward differing ownership and government structures.

Keywords:   populism, socialism, America, Europe, corporate Governance, capital movement
