At the beginning of the nineties, the American system of corporate finance and governance was strongly blamed for its presumed bias towards short-term financial concerns, stemming from shareholders' pressures for immediate profits.Critics contrasted the American model with that prevalent in Japan and Germany, where a consensus-building approach was supposed to cope successfully with the interests of different stakeholder groups in the company.Lisa’s career began in consulting where she designed field service operations for medical device companies by conducting end-user surveys, performing focus groups and competitive analyses.

Argumenta-se que a literatura disponível permite identificar as seguintes características nesse sistema: 1) o sistema regulatório-legal restringe, de fato, o potencial para a expropriação de acionistas minoritários, ainda que ao custo de inibir o ativismo de investidores institucionais; 2) os conselhos de administração, como regra, não cumprem seu papel de efetivamente monitorar os executivos, embora mais recentemente possam ser identificados casos em grandes corporações em que tenham sido mais pró-ativos; 3) o mercado de controle das empresas esbarra em vários tipos de dificuldades (desde empecilhos legais a custos de transação elevados e problemas de free-rider), suficientes para limitar sua capacidade de coibir ineficiências e rent-seeking dos executivos; 4) a competição nos mercados de produto e de capital pode coexistir por um longo tempo com expropriação dos acionistas e gestão inadequada.This monopoly was known as the Bell System, In 1982, U. regulators broke up the AT&T monopoly, requiring AT&T to divest its regional subsidiaries and turning them each into individual companies.These new companies were known as Regional Bell Operating Companies, or more informally, Baby Bells. This paper aims at evaluating the mechanisms of corporate governance currently at work in the United States.The paper argues that the evidence provided by the existing corporate governance literature supports the following propositions: 1) the legal and regulatory framework actually restrains the scope for expropriating minority shareholders, though at the cost of inhibiting institutional investor activism; 2) as a rule, the board of directors do not comply with their mandatory duty of overseeing management, although some progress has recently been made, with directors in several companies becoming less submissive to chief executive officers; 3) the market for corporate control encounters a great number of difficulties (ranging from legal hurdles to high transaction costs and to serious free-riding problems), which are sufficient to cast a cloud on its reliability as a means of repressing managerial inefficiencies and rent-seeking; 4) competition in the product and capital markets is likely to produce effects only in the long-run.AT&T continued to operate long distance services, but as a result of this breakup, faced competition from new competitors such as MCI and Sprint.
