      Fall of the Ivory Tower: Controlled Companies and Shareholder Activism

      Despite longstanding complaints about governance and the tyranny of a few who may or may not hold a meaningful economic interest in the company they founded and/or now control, investors have continued to allocate to controlled or quasi-controlled companies.
