Business Ethics : the Ethical Revolution of Minority Shareholders

Business Ethics: The Ethical Revolution of Minority Shareholders is a pioneer and original work in the domain of ethics in the relations between companies and minority shareholders. The book puts into context the motives of the controlling shareholders, who operate in collaboration with the management of their companies, in order to maximize their profits, very often at the expense of the small shareholders who do not possess insider information. This volume describes how the traditional safeguards of the rights of shareholders, namely the law, the SEC, boards of directors, independent directors, auditors, analysts, underwriters and the press, are inefficient in many cases toward minority shareholders
