Sir John Cass’s Foundation Lecture, delivered by Professor Colin Mayer FBA, on 3 March 2015 (venue: The British Academy).
The business corporation is the source of economic prosperity, but it is also the cause of immense problems and its failures are increasing. Professor Mayer asks: What can be done to reform the corporation so that it earns the respect and trust that we expect of it in contemporary society?
