Abstract: The corporation has been one of the major institutions of capitalism since the end of the 19th century. It was the central instrument in the industrial development of Western economies and then the rest of the world. Today more than ever, the characteristics and behaviour of corporations have considerable economic, social, environmental and even political consequences. The conditions under which these companies are managed, the objectives they pursue and the interests defended by their managers are therefore of prime importance.
