Abstract

The emergence of the economy of knowledge has resulted in, among other consequences, the triumph of globalization and market liberalization, the primacy of the individual as a competitive critical factor and the crisis of the relevance of financial information, its comparability and reliability. The financial scandals we have witnesses during the last decade have highlighted the need for greater transparency in our corporations. Thus, corporate governance emerges as a tool for the company to comply with its social responsibility by providing more reliable information to all its stakeholders. In addition, one of the main features is the knowledge society, which is the availability of information and communication technologies (ICT). Consequently, the reliability of the financial information that companies disseminate over the Internet is relevant, assuming a good example of transparency takes place. This paper analyses the information contained on the websites of Spanish rural saving banks, as a tool for evaluating their corporate e-government (one of the major innovations in corporate governance).
