Securities Investor Protection Corporation:Security (Finance) Broker-Dealer
Executives, investors, and the business press routinely chant the mantra that corporations are required to ´´maximize shareholder value.´´ In this path-breaking book, renowned corporate expert Lynn Stout debunks the myth that corporate law mandates shareholder primacy. Stout shows how shareholder value thinking endangers not only investors but the rest of us as well. It leads managers to focus myopically on short-term earnings; discourages investment and innovation; harms employees, customers, and communities; and causes companies to indulge in reckless, sociopathic, and irresponsible behaviors. Additionally, Stout looks at new models of corporate purpose that better serve the needs of investors, corporations, and society. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elaine Kellner.

Behavioral Finance and Capital Markets: How Psychology Influences Investors and Corporations:How Psychology Influences Investors and Corporations. Auflage 2013 Adam Szyszka/ A. Szyszka
On July 30, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002. At the heart of the Act is the mandate for corporate reform from the massive financial and leadership fraud of the late 1990s and early 2000s. This book attempts to look deep into the soul of the Act not only evaluating the efficacy of the policy, but also to verify the heralding for a new dedication to the ethical and moral boardroom in the public corporation. The project consults legislative, legal, historical, and philosophical primary and secondary research to confirm the big question, Does Good Behavior Pay Off? The overarching goal is to ascertain to what extent does the Aristotelian credo of arete, or human excellence, serve the Future Manager and find its formula in The New Corporation.
Companies are increasingly facing intense pressures to address stakeholder demands from every direction: consumers want socially responsible products; employees want meaningful work; investors now screen on environmental, social, and governance criteria; ´´clicktivists´´ create social media storms over company missteps. CEOs now realize that their companies must be social as well as commercial actors, but stakeholder pressures often create trade-offs with demands to deliver financial performance to shareholders. How can companies respond while avoiding simple ´´greenwashing´´ or ´´pinkwashing´´? This book lays out a roadmap for organizational leaders who have hit the limits of the supposed win-win of shared value to explore how companies can cope with real trade-offs, innovating around them or even thriving within them. Suggesting that the shared-value mindset may actually get in the way of progress, bestselling author Sarah Kaplan shows in The 360° Corporation how trade-offs, rather than being confusing or problematic, can actually be the source of organizational resilience and transformation.

Responsible entrepreneurs are a special breed, seeking to transform industries and even society itself. They challenge and refine cultural assumptions, laws, regulations, and even the processes of governance. This requires them to do and think far beyond what is usually required of business leaders. The Responsible Entrepreneur offers a blueprint for this new kind of business leadership, describing the means by which any entrepreneur can pursue a higher order of work. In it, Carol Sanford, one of the most trusted names in responsible business development, brings her vast expertise in helping executives and corporations to the entrepreneur looking to launch and scale a venture. She maps this journey through four archetypes: The Realizing Entrepreneur: Industry Game-Changer. The Reconnection Entrepreneur: Society Game-Changer. The Reciprocity Entrepreneur: Culture Game-Changer. The Regenerative Entrepreneur: Governance Game-Changer. By understanding the archetype most aligned with their goals, entrepreneurs will learn how to grow their business into a powerful platform that can leverage change, and even change the foundations that create our most pressing problems and issues. To illustrate these principles in action, The Responsible Entrepreneur features case studies based on long-term work and in-depth interviews with Google Innovation Labs, Indigenous Designs (the primary supplier for Eileen Fisher), Fish People (who supply Costco and Google with gourmet seafood entrees), and many more. For entrepreneurs seeking to pursue world-changing results, or impact investors looking to align their capital with their values, The Responsible Entrepreneur provides the frameworks to build a business and to evaluate and direct investments to create the greatest benefit for all stakeholders. 1.
