A theoretical framework is presented that connects change in the organization of labor with change in corporate governance and financial system development. Building on work by Rueda (2005, 2006, 2007), the paper considers labor change in terms of reduced "insiderness" and examines how this might impact on the orientation of corporate governance vis-à-vis blockholders and minority shareholders. The proposed relationship is investigated utilizing a panel of data for the advanced industrialized democracies.
