      Elizabeth Warren: Companies Shouldn’t Be Accountable Only to Shareholders

      My new bill would require corporations to answer to employees and other stakeholders as well. Photo: Richard Drew/Associated Press Elizabeth Warren Aug. 14, 2018 7:01 p.m. ET Corporate profits are booming, but average wages haven’t budged over the past year. The U.S. economy has run this way for decades, partly because of a fundamental change in business practices dating back to the 1980s. On Wednesday I’m introducing legislation to fix it...

    3. Why Glencore Plc’s (LON:GLEN) Investor Composition Impacts Your Returns

      Why Glencore Plc’s (LON:GLEN) Investor Composition Impacts Your Returns

      I am going to take a deep dive into Glencore Plc’s ( LON:GLEN ) most recent ownership structure, not a frequent subject of discussion among individual investors. Ownership structure has been found to have an impact on shareholder returns in both short- and long-term. Since the same amount of capital coming from an activist institution and a passive mutual fund has different implications on corporate governance, it is a useful exercise to deconstruct GLEN’s shareholder registry...

    4. Beginning Your Board Service Journey: Opportunities Beyond Nonprofits

      Beginning Your Board Service Journey: Opportunities Beyond Nonprofits

      I do a lot of speaking to professionals, including lawyers, about demystifying board service. No matter how often I speak, the same questions often come up. One of the most common is: “Is serving on a nonprofit board a good way to start a for-profit board journey?” The short answer is: “Maybe.” Depending on how well the board is run, what you do there, and who else serves with you, serving on a nonprofit board may be a great jumping-off point for your for-profit board service. But there are two reasons I am always ...

      CBS’s Board Pretends to Know What It’s Doing

      CBS Corp. takes the prize this year for most dysfunctional corporate governance. It’s lucky the disarray isn’t showing up in its business operations — well, not yet.

      The $20 billion media company is mired in a bitter legal battle against its controlling shareholder, Shari Redstone, a situation that has turned nasty, with both sides trading jabs and accusations in recent months...

    7. Politics Have Already Entered the Boardroom

      Politics Have Already Entered the Boardroom

      Phil Gramm and Mike Solon’s “Keep Politics Out of the Boardroom” (op-ed, July 19) criticizing the role of large index managers misrepresents State Street Global Advisors’ core investment mission. We engage with companies not to force arbitrary political or social “values” on them, but rather to promote long-term value for millions of investors saving for the future in a world that has become increasingly obsessed with the short term...

      Britain’s Non-Executive Club Needs New Members

      Britain’s accounting watchdog is in the strange position of updating the country’s corporate governance code while simultaneously fighting for its life.The Financial Reporting Council is reeling from the collapse of Carillion Plc earlier this year. The construction firm’s demise exposed a host of governance failings: auditors missed red flags in the accounts, the board failed to challenge management, and investors waved through fat pay packets and juicy dividends...

      How Well Does Agency Theory Explain Executive Compensation? by George-Levi Gayle, Chen Li, and Robert A. Miller

      As the share of all income going to the top 1 percent has risen over the past four decades, so has the share of top incomes coming from labor income relative to capital income. The rise in labor income is mainly due to the explosion in executive compensation over the same period—mostly because of the increase in executives being paid with stocks, options, and bonuses...
