Chapter 4 Executive Compensation
Corporate Governance after the Financial Crisis

Stephen M. Bainbridge

Oxford University Press

Both Sarbanes–Oxley and Dodd–Frank included new executive compensation regulations. A key question is whether these provisions addressed actual corporate governance failures or were simply a sop to populist outrage. In either case, one must also ask whether the new restrictions are likely to be effective. It is argued that the one-size-fits-all approach mandated by the Sarbanes–Oxley Act and the new self-regulatory organization listing standards is seriously flawed.
