Dorothy Lund and Elizabeth Pollman on the Corporate-Governance Machine

Dorothy Lund, assistant professor of law the University of Southern California, and Elizabeth Pollman, professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania, join the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss their article The Corporate Governance Machine. In this article, Lund and Pollman identify the origins of the term “corporate governance” and explain corporate governance’s emergence as a shareholder-focused system supported by law, markets, and culture.
