    1. 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 ...

      The Regulation of Proxy Advisors

      Recently, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs held a hearing on various legislative proposals aimed at improving corporate governance, including the Corporate Governance Reform and Transparency Act, H.R. 4015, that would regulate the activities of proxy advisory firms like Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) and Glass Lewis...

      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...

    4. 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...

    5. Britain’s Non-Executive Club Needs New Members

      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...

    7. The Lesson for Elon Musk? Don't Rely on Fan Club Directors | Nils Pratley | Business

      The Lesson for Elon Musk? Don't Rely on Fan Club Directors | Nils Pratley | Business

      Elon Musk has come to his senses and apologised for his ugly and baseless slur against a British cave explorer who played a key role in the rescue in Thailand. The Tesla founder couldn’t resist taking a final dig at Vernon Unsworth – he said the diver had told “several untruths and suggested I engage in a sexual act with the mini [submarine]” – but at least Musk acknowledged he has nobody to blame but himself. “The fault is mine and mine alone,” he said in a tweet...

    8. Executive Compensation: Will the New Pay Ratio Disclosure Help Curb What CEOs Make?

      Executive Compensation: Will the New Pay Ratio Disclosure Help Curb What CEOs Make?

      For decades, politicians, labor unions and pay equity advocates have railed against how much top executives at American companies make. The outrage has sparked a hodgepodge of disclosures requirements, accounting rules and tax policies aimed at reining in CEO pay – with uneven results. Now perhaps most controversial of these efforts – the CEO- to-worker pay ratio – has finally been implemented this year for the first time...
