If the 19th century was the age of the entrepreneur and the 20th century was the age of management, the 21st century will be the era of corporate governance and the way that power is exercised over all corporate entities in society around the world. Very little has been so far written about the value and wealth creation role of the owner and the ownership function. This book fills that gap, serving as an excellent reference tool for understanding the practicalities of corporate ownership and its implications in the 21st century.
