'Management' - as practiced in modern corporations as well as the social position ascribed to its exponents - is today comparatively well established and institutionalized. For Berle and Means, '[m]anagement' may be defined as that body of men who, in law, have formally assumed the duties of exercising domination over the corporate business and assets.' 'Management' has not, however, always been so taken for granted; and, as we shall show, its theory and practice remains a product of struggles b...

The development of transparent accounting is often theoretically linked with the development of financial markets. In this paper we argue that such an understanding of transparent accounting does not necessarily consider the temporality of the historical context where transparent accounting is invented. To illustrate this argument we empirically investigate the raise of transparent accounting in Sweden during the 1960s and 1970s. This time-period in Sweden is characterised by underdeveloped fina...

Soft law refers to a deviation from hard law that begins with the weakening of legal arrangements ‘along one or more of the dimensions of obligation, precision, and delegation’. Such a weakening of legal arrangements is considered potentially beneficial.

From the early decades of the twentieth century, a dominant characteristic of the modern "capitalist" corporation, especially in the United States, was the separation of asset ownership in the form of publicly traded shares from allocative control over the corporation's resources by salaried managers. By the 1950s some depicted managerial-controlled large enterprise as the "soulful" corporation in which the allocation of resources resulted in enhanced social welfare. In the 1960s, however, some ...

Corporate governance is political. Corporate governance is about who gets to have a say in how businesses are organized and how their fruits are divided among different constituencies, particularly owners and workers. National and international politics, laws and regulations shape both the issue of decision-making and the issue of division. In this framing, questions about the "purpose of the corporation" are distinctly political, because the organization of corporate governance is a consequence...

A number of regulatory initiatives on the national, international and EU levels both foster and fortify the principle of Maximizing Shareholder Value (MSV) in corporate governance. This tendency can be clearly seen in such areas as financial accounting standards and various soft and hard law initiatives pertaining to corporate governance that have flourished in recent decades. These have created a new type of accountability for managers of listed corporations as will be exemplified below. One of...

The rise of modern corporations has been accompanied by an expansion of salaried executives who have replaced owner-managers. With this expansion, the new class of managers/executives came to regard themselves as stewards of large and complex corporations, and not principally or exclusively as agents for the owners. Emerging as a self- styled "profession", there was a continuous debate around the necessity for the corporation to be responsible to the collective and to its stakeholders. During lo...

Corporations play a central role in modern economies. Certain beliefs about corporations and corporate law are widely held and relied upon by business experts, the financial press, and economists who study the firm. Unfortunately, some of these widely-held beliefs are mistaken. This has led to numerous common errors in the way corporate law concepts are understood and applied. The authors of this Summary are experts versed in a variety of national legal systems, including those of the U.S. and U...
