The New Consensus of the Governed: Re-imagining Corporate Governance

Looking at government involvement in business and finance.

The central tenet of democratic capitalism has always been to allow the market to operate with minimal interference from elected governments. This underlying assumption is now being challenged. With the public's distrust of Government growing, will they entrust major financial decisions to politicians. The failure of financial institutions to restrain the excessive growth in credit has raised the question of the effectiveness of corporate governance. This lecture will examine the underlying principles of corporate governance, and the relationship with politicians as equity owners of corporations. How can governance be designed to minimise abuse without stifling creativity and innovation.
