- 公司越来越好：公司治理十年(Keeping Better Company: Corporate Governance Ten Years On)简介：
- International comparisons of business usually focus on management theory, labor practices, cultural differences, work force composition, etc. Overlooked is how corporations are actually governed: that is, the role played by boards of directors. Charkham, an adviser in industry to the governor of the Bank of England, analyzed five countries (Germany, Japan, France, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.) for the period 1986-90 and updated his analysis with data from the last half of 1992. He investigated not only the legal, formal role of boards of directors but also the personal attitudes and interactions of board members. Having conducted extensive interviews and exhaustive research, Charkham concluded that, based on his two criteria of dynamism and accountability, the German system is the most effective. He also considered the unique problems of multinational companies that may come under the jurisdiction of conflicting systems. For academic and large public library business collections.
