Corporate Governance

Featured

Public interest in business ethics rose in the wake of the bankruptcies of Enron and WorldCom and has become even more pronounced since the financial crisis of 2008. RAND takes an active role in improving public understanding of corporate governance and ethics issues, with research evaluating the effects of regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley on U.S. businesses, liability risk in the auditing industry, and the relationship between individual investors and the financial services industry.
