There are many analytical papers and researches done in the field of examining and analyzing consequences of the Sarbanes Oxley Act (2002) and some done in the corporate governance in some Latin American countries. This paper chooses a different approach. First, it selects The US, Brazil and Chile, which represents for Latin American countries, as three (3) American countries to analyze their best suitable policies and corporate governance practices, in consideration of factors after crisis and scandals. Second, it aims to build a selected comparative set of standards for corporate governance system in the US and representative Latin American countries. Last but not least, this paper illustrates corporate governance standards that it might give proper recommendations to relevant governments and institutions in re-evaluating their current ones.
