Abstract

Matthias Benz and Bruno S. Frey critically examines the theoretical perspective that the corporations should aspire for an uniformly optimal structure of governance structure in "Towards a Constitutional Theory of Corporate Governance." They make a comparative study of the pros & cons of limited constitutional rights to shareholders under the US corporate laws with the extensive constitutional rights under the Swiss corporate laws.
