Abstract :
This paper analyzes corporate governance systems in five Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Venezuela. We account for the broader institutional environment by explaining changes over time as well as existing corporate governance systems. We use a stakeholder definition of corporate governance that includes examining insiders such as owners and boards of directors as well as outsiders such as employees. This corporate governance perspective allows for a systematic cross-national comparison.
