In the Boardroom: US lags behind UK on reform - Bob Monks

I had the chance to talk with Lucy Marcus of Reuters today about the difficulty of getting corporate boards to listen to shareholders, and the differences in shareholder activism in the U.S. and U.K.  It was a very good discussion with a very good interviewer.  Have a listen.

Terrific overview of the native differences in corporate governance between the United States and the United Kingdom, especially regarding power, possibility, and board director obligations.

I continue to marvel at the irony: the Mother Country, from whom we Americans sought independence to establish self-governing systems, sets the pace on corporate governance. In the U.S., we've an oligarchic system, worse than any monarchy.

Thanks to Lucy Marcus and Bob Monks for this gem!
