“The Shareholder Value Myth”

Featured Speaker
Lynn Stout
Distinguished Professor of Corporate and Business Law, Clarke Business Law Institute, Cornell Law School

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear renowned corporate expert Lynn Stout speak to Cornell alumni about her path-breaking book, “The Shareholder Value Myth: How Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors, Corporations and the Public.” Prof. Stout debunks the myth that corporate law mandates shareholder primacy. She shows how shareholder value thinking endangers not only investors but the rest of us as well, leading managers to focus myopically on short-term profits, discouraging investment and innovation, and harming employees, customers and communities. Prof. Stout looks at new models of corporate purpose that better serve the needs of investors, corporations and society.
