    1. Britain’s Non-Executive Club Needs New Members

      Britain’s Non-Executive Club Needs New Members

      Britain’s accounting watchdog is in the strange position of updating the country’s corporate governance code while simultaneously fighting for its life.The Financial Reporting Council is reeling from the collapse of Carillion Plc earlier this year.

      How Well Does Agency Theory Explain Executive Compensation? by George-Levi Gayle, Chen Li, and Robert A. Miller

      As the share of all income going to the top 1 percent has risen over the past four decades, so has the share of top incomes coming from labor income relative to capital income.

      The Lesson for Elon Musk? Don't Rely on Fan Club Directors | Nils Pratley | Business

      Elon Musk has come to his senses and apologised for his ugly and baseless slur against a British cave explorer who played a key role in the rescue in Thailand.

      American Airlines, Qatar, and the NOL Poison Pill

      I know most bloggers today are consumed with the June avalanche of Supreme Court opinions and cert grants, but something interesting is afoot in the corporate law world (and more importantly the actual world). At the end of last week, Qatar Airways announced plans to purchase 10% of American Airlines . That move is definitely a little more interesting than Berkshire Hathaway reentering the airline sector and poses a lot of political concerns...

      In Icahn-SandRidge Tiff, Bitter Words Hide Overlapping Goal

      (Bloomberg) -- The oil industry’s ugliest battle is heading for a climax in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. But SandRidge Energy Inc. is probably bound for the auction block anyway.
