Shareholder value provides the rationale, incentive, and justification for investor engagement. The chapter outlines the basic concepts of shareholder value, its preconditions, and the reasons for its growth since the 1980s, especially in the UK and the USA. Shareholder value developed out of responses to the economic crises of the 1970s, facilitated by the dominance of liberal economics and the absence of counter definitions of corporate transformation by organized labour.

Keywords:   corporate transformation, organized labour, 1970s economic crisis, liberal economies, human capital theory, institutional preconditions, legal preconditions, cultural preconditions, shareholder value
