Corporate Accountability Reporting Conference
The financial crisis of 2008-2009 has generated additional momentum for corporate accountability reporting. Speaking as a member of the Wall Street Journal's CEO Council, Sir Martin Sorrell argued, "Companies should talk less about the benefits to shareholders of short-term profits and focus on customer needs, investment in labor, and sustainability." Corporate accountability reporting is broadly consistent with at least two hypotheses: (1) such reporting augments shareholders' demand for information and monitoring; (2) such reporting responds to non-shareholder constituents' demands, potentially, but not necessarily, at shareholders' expense.
