Business, Law and Economics Channel


This event was co-sponsored by the UC Berkeley Center on Institutions and Governance (IGOV).
A clear lesson from the global economic meltdown is that corporate governance and ethics matter. Less clear are the steps to improving how financial firms operate. Join a panel of UC Berkeley professors to explore and respond to questions such as: How should executives incorporate potential global and long term impacts into their business decisions? Can corporate governance structures and rules be improved to provide meaningful oversight and socially favorable incentives to financial firm leaders? Are the recent announcements of bonuses to financial executives a sign of economic recovery or continued ethical lapses?
