Gloom to Euphoria . . . and Back
Chapter 5 deals with the 1990s, a decade when changing market conditions dramatically affected perceptions of public companies and the executives in charge. Pessimism prevalent as the 1990s got underway would dissipate in a few years with the American economy and the stock market both thriving. Public company executives ended the decade riding high in a manner that was unmatched throughout the post–World War II era. Concomitantly, confidence in the efficacy of internal and external constraints affecting public company management grew substantially. Optimism about corporate governance would quickly dissipate, however, when public companies suffered a sharp reversal of fortunes as the 2000s got underway.
