Corporate Governance in Context

Martin F. Hellwig

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the rhetoric, the semantics, and the reality of ‘market discipline’ in the 1990s. It begins with a discussion of what financial ‘markets’ actually do and in what sense one can speak of ‘markets’ as performing such functions differently from other institutions. In particular, it discusses the specifics of information processing in different institutions and different governance structures. Finally, the chapter returns to a discussion of ‘market discipline’ and corporate governance.

Keywords:   market discipline, financial markets, corporate governance
