Corporate Governance—A New Paradigm from the U.K.




1. Stakeholder, not shareholder, governance.

2. Board diversity: consumers and workers to be added.

3. Protection from takeover for national champions like Cadbury and AstraZeneca.

4. Binding, not advisory, say-on-pay.

5. Long-term, not short-term, business strategy.

6. Greater corporate transparency.

7. Stricter antitrust.

8. Higher taxes and crack down on tax avoidance and evasion.

9. It is not anti-business to suggest that big business needs to change. Better governance will help these companies to take better decisions, for their own long-term benefit and that of the economy overall.
