9780761831976: Corruption in Corporate America: Who is Responsible? Who Will Protect the Public Interest?

Modern capitalism and political freedom rest on concepts of conscience and morality, and abhor concentrations of unbridled power. America's economic and political system has developed mechanisms designed to check and balance such power. Despite these mechanisms, there are chief executives who abuse their power in a fraudulent and self-serving pursuit of wealth and authority. How did this happen? How did the system respond? What can be done to prevent it in the future? Corruption in Corporate America seeks to answer these questions.

About the Author:

Abraham L. Gitlow is Dean Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of Economics at New York University.

Review:

This is a very well organized and very insightful book by one of the giants of business education. There are important messages for all the gatekeepers of our business schools and business education. (Martin Lipton, corporate attorney)

The author's free-flowing lucid style of writing makes the meaning of the detailed provision of 'The Act' easy to comprehend. The anecdotal material based on [Gitlow's] experience makes for interesting reading. (Dr. Ernest Kurnow, Professor Emeritus, New York University)

A first-rate introduction to an important and timely topic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Public, academic, and professional library collections. (CHOICE)

Corruption in Corporate America is full of acute analysis, providing both clarity and balance. (Paul Volcker, former Chairman, Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System)
