The Geography of Finance tackles crucial issues regarding the emerging global market for corporate governance. The authors describe and explain the transformation of European corporate governance in the light of the imperatives driving global financial markets, using an innovative analytical framework.
The authors chart the response of corporate managers to the interest of global portfolio managers in transparent and accountable modes of corporate governance. In doing so, the authors provide an innovative perspective on a rapidly changing environment; and a challenge to those who ignore the gathering momentum of global financial markets.
`This fine book sheds new light on the interaction of dynamic financial markets and the structures of corporate governance. The authors take us far beyond conventional treatments of institutional convergence and divergence. Their broadly interdisciplinary approach yields compelling arguments,
innovative empirical tests, and appropriately nuanced conclusions. The Geography of Finance will certainly engage a wide range of expert readers, but students and non-specialists interested in the future of global capitalism will find it accessible as well.’
