Abstract

In view of recent corporate scandals, it is argued that corporate governance can learn from public governance. Institutions devised to control and discipline the behaviour of executives in the political sphere can give new insights into how to improve the governance of firms. Some proposal such as division of power within firms, rules of succession in top positions, and institutionalized competition in core areas of corporations are discussed.
