Abstract

This article discusses current trends in corporate governance and theorizes on the likely impact of those trends for the twenty-first century. Part II focuses on an overview of four current trends in the areas of technology, globalization, shareholder activism, and private ordering. Part III assesses the likely impact of those trends on corporate governance in the twenty-first century. A successful corporation will need to seamlessly integrate technology to act effortlessly across international time zones, and it will need to raise capital quickly and efficiently in different global capital markets. The authors posit that these needs will lead to the emergence of a universal entity, affording its creators maximum flexibility.
