Equal is unfair : America's misguided fight against income inequality by Don Watkins( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A startling and controversial argument that claims the key to reviving the American dream of limitless opportunity is not to fight income inequality-- but to celebrate unequal achievement. We've all heard the story. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer. The American Dream has all but vanished, obliterated by astounding income inequality. To save the American Dream, we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage. But what if that's wrong? What if the real threat to the American dream isn't rising income inequality-- but an all-out war on success? In Equal Unfair, Don Watkins and Yaron Brook reveal why: CEOs make so much money-- and deserve to; The minimum wage hurts the people it purports to help; middle-class stagnation is a myth; Sweden's history reveals the dangers of forced inequality"--Container

Corporate governance : a study of director liability, firm performance and shareholder wealth by Yaron Brook( )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the relationship between the composition of the board of directors, director liability, the firm's performance and shareholder wealth. The existence of a director liability crisis is first examined. Both anecdotal and empirical evidence suggest that such a crisis did indeed occur. The evidence also suggests that the "crisis" primarily hurt firms that were performing poorly. To verify the existence of a "crisis" and to gain insight into the effect director resignations have on firm value, a sample of firms, where more than one director resigned at the same time, is collected. This sample spans the period when it is hypothesized that a crisis occurred and the period following the "crisis". As predicted, shareholders response to directors resignations are significantly different during these two periods. During the "crisis" years the resignation of directors results in a loss to firm value for all firms. The magnitude of the loss is directly related to firm performance. Alternatively, following the "crisis", the relationship between performance and shareholder response to the directors resignation is inverse and not always negative. These results suggest that the board's composition can effect firm value and that during the "crisis" period directors were hard to replace and therefore their resignations reduced firm value. The more negative response from poorly performing firms suggests that for these firms directors are especially valuable. Under normal conditions, i.e., after the "crisis", shareholders view changes in board composition as positive events in firms that are doing poorly, and as a negative signal from firms that are doing well. An examination of the event that legally eliminated the "director liability crisis," i.e., the adoption of provisions eliminating directors' liability, provides further evidence as to the importance of directors to poorly performing firms. Shareholders of poorly performing firms respond positively to the adoption of these provisions, emphasizing the importance of maintaining the integrity of the board of directors. For other firms, this is less important and the adoption of these provisions does not effect firm value

Antitrust is immoral by Gary Hull( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In this provocative lecture, Dr. Gary Hull, director of the program on values and ethics in the marketplace at Duke University, argues that the targets of antitrust are not criminals but victims. Their much-revived monopoly power is not coercive or destructive ; it is the life-giving power to produce products that are incredibly appealing to customers and far superior to those of laggard competitors. Antitrust law, argues Dr. Hull is fundamentally unjust : it throttles, punishes and sacrifices America's best producers for the sake of their inferiors ..."--Cover label

The Gains from Takeover Deregulation: Evidence from the End of Interstate Banking Restrictions by Yaron Brook( )

1 edition published in 1998 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper uses interstate banking deregulation to explore the benefits of takeover deregulation and how these benefits are distributed across different firms. We find large and significant abnormal returns around the Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 which imply it created $85 billion of value in the banking industry. Consistent with an active market for corporate control allowing beneficial consolidation and providing needed discipline, there is a strong negative relationship between banks' abnormal returns and their prior performance. Consistent with managerial entrenchment limiting takeover discipline, banks with higher insider ownership, lower outside block ownership, and/or less independent boards have lower abnormal returns
Corporate Governance and Recent Consolidation in the Banking Industry by Yaron Brook( )

1 edition published in 2000 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using the universe of publicly traded banks at year-end 1993, we find that target banks' outside directors, but not inside directors, tend to own more stock than their counterparts in other banks. Having an outside blockholder is also associated with banks becoming targets. In contrast to existing research on industrial firms, board structure does not help determine which sample banks sell. Neither the fraction of outsiders on a bank's board nor having an outside-dominated board differentiate the target banks in our sample. Instead, outside directors/shareholders and blockholders appear to be primarily responsible for encouraging bank managers to accept an attractive merger offer
