Abstract

This survey gives an overview of the current state of knowledge on the question of whether corporate-governance structures worldwide are determinants of differences in economic performance. We look at the identities of owners, monitoring boards, and legal systems and find that some, though not all, corporate-governance structures give rise to differences in performance. The paper ends with a tentative look at the prospects of corporate-governance structures converging worldwide. Copyright 2004, Oxford University Press.
