What People are Saying About This
This is a well-written book, timely also, on an important topic . . . The compilation of detailed empirical data and the thorough theoretical background of the discussion make the book a most valuable contribution to the corporate finance literature. In addition, a recent series of spectacular firm crashes that occurred despite the monitoring by bank supervisors has made the overall topic of the book a number one issue in the political debate.
