Description

In their introduction to the new edition of The Modern Corporation and Private Property, Weidenbaum and Jensen critically assess the impact of developments not fully anticipated by Adolf Berle and Gardiner Means, such as the rise of the service sector, and the significant role played by institutional investors in the owner/manager equation. They note the authors' prescient observations, including the complex role of and motivating influences on professional managers, and the significance of inside information on stock markets.
