Abstract

Throughout the world, the Anglo-American model of corporate governance tends
to prevail – but no two countries are identical. Governance outcomes in developing
and emerging economies often deviate from what theory predicts, due to a
wide range of factors. Using insights from new institutional economics, Corporate
Governance in Developing and Emerging Markets aims to explain the different issues
and cultural and legal factors at play, and to put forward an alternative governance
framework for these economies.
Structured in three parts, this text investigates different models of corporate
governance; explores the realities of corporate governance in ten nations, including
the BRIC and MINT countries; and then considers corporate governance reform.
This interdisciplinary text will be a valuable tool for students of corporate governance
across business, economics and law; and an equally useful resource for
anyone working in or carrying out research in this area.
