The Shareholder Value Myth
How Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors, Corporations, and the Public (16pt Large Print Edition)
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Lynn Stout proves that there is in fact no legal obligation for corporations to maximize shareholder value - scholars, lawyers, and corporate officers just assumed there was. Nor, she demonstrates, is maximizing shareholder value the optimal economic model - that's just another unproven assumption, one that is conceptually muddled and, Stout shows, unsupported by the actual evidence on what drives good corporate performance.
As if this wasn't enough, Stout also shows how shareholder primacy actually hurts individual investors by obscuring their real, diverse, human interests in the name of serving a hypothetical, homogeneous, abstract, and conscienceless shareholder. Stout looks at new theories that better serve the needs not only of actual human beings who invest but of corporations and society as well.
''Calm, careful, plainspoken, and relentless argumentation that peels away the distracting layers of abstract mumbo jumbo to expose the lunacy of the underlying theory for all to see. Lynn Stout does the world a great favor in exposing shareholder value theory for what it is: flawed and damaging.''
- Roger Martin, Dean, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, and author of Fixing the Game.
