Corporate Governance Theories: From Micro Theories to National Systems Theories

Working Papers CREGO from Université de Bourgogne - CREGO EA7317 Centre de recherches en gestion des organisations

Abstract: The objective of this article is to conduct a survey of the different corporate governance theories. In the first part, we present the micro theories by opposing the disciplinary view to the knowledge-based view. The second part deals with the macro or national systems theories. We separate the theories based on appropriation of the organizational rent from those attributing a dominant role to production. This survey highlights that the financial view of corporate governance is a very particular case and presents many limits.

Keywords: national systems of governance; micro theories of corporate governance; macro theories of corporate governance; disciplinary view; knowledge-based view; law and finance view; political theory; varieties of capitalism. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
