The process of economic globalization, as product and capital markets have become increasingly integrated since WWII, has placed huge, and it is argued by some, irresistible pressures on the world's 'insider' stakeholder oriented corporate governance systems. Insider corporate governance systems in countries such as Germany, so the argument goes, should converge or be transformed by global product and capital market pressures to the 'superior' shareholder oriented 'outsider' corporate governance model prevalent in the UK and the US. What these pressures from globalization are, how they manifest themselves, whether they are likely to cause such a convergence/transformation and whether these pressures will continue, lie at the heart of the exploration in this volume. The Globalization of Corporate Governance provides a detailed analysis of the evolution of the key corporate governance systems in the UK, the US and Germany from the perspective of the development of economic globalization. As such it is a valuable resource for those interested in how economic and legal reforms interact to produce change within corporate governance systems.

The structure of corporate governance has made significant progress in OECD countries but it remains imperfectly linked to the activities of many businesses. Its advance on the global stage will be hesitant and slow until its practice in OECD countries is more consistent and convincing. Weaknesses in corporate governance and law enforcement are impeding the investment needed to build the global economy to its full potential. The Globalisation of Corporate Governance: The Challenge of Clashing Cultures, explores the challenges of making corporate governance effective for all participants in a global economy. The tasks of: o reappraising the purpose of corporate governance in a global context; o reassessing ownership and the "agency principle" in a global context; o potential clashes of culture and how they may affect corporate governance; o understanding human motivation and how it can help to drive better governance; o relating corporate governance to a changing and uncertain external world; o coping with a lack of effective global institutions to underpin the globalisation of corporate governance and enforce the rule of law; and o using corporate governance to build resilience and sustainable success; need to be met if corporate governance is to succeed in driving globalisation and encouraging investment worldwide.

Globalization and Corporate Governance in Developing Countries provides a clear-eyed analysis of the effects of the global economy on developing countries, which often face an up-hill battle when they opt to compete in a global market. Listing on a foreign exchange alone can be daunting, because it means following the home rules as well as a different set of stringent rules and elevated cost required by the listing exchange. Within this context, the question of cost-effectiveness, the desirability of possible changes to the company and tangible benefits are raised. The effects of globalization clearly travel a two-way street. Is harmonization possible and sensible? This book weighs options and poses questions within a balanced assessment of new economic reality. This volume is in the International Law and Development Series edited by Professor Raj Bhala.Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.
