Abstract

This paper formally proves that economic outcomes are not independent from the corporate governance system and its ability to protect shareholders’ rights. This is achieved by extending a neoclassical growth model to incorporate an imperfectly functioning market for managerial labour enabling management to maximise own private benefit alongside profit.

Keywords: Economic growth, shareholders rights, corporate governance, speed of convergence
