    (VF)L'histoire de l'activisme actionnarial telle qu'on l'a racontée a donné aux premiers "contestataires" moins d'attention qu'ils ne le méritent. Non seulement ils étaient célèbres à leur époque, mais ils ont soulevé des questions qui sont toujours d'actualité. Lorsque les questions de responsabilité et de gouvernement des entreprises ont refait surface dans les années qui suivirent, les nouveaux activistes ont pu faire valoir les précédents établis par ces pionniers. (gouvernement des entreprises - régulation publique - histoire économique - théorie actionnariale. (VA) Accounts of the history of shareholder activism have tended to give the early "gadflies" less attention than they deserve. Not only were they celebrated in their own time, they raised issues still relevant today. When issues of corporate governance and responsibility resurfaced in later years, the new activists would make use of the precedents set by these pioneers.
