In this session, we explore the international “game” of Corporate Governance and the changes taking place.

In 2014 Alibaba debuted on the New York Stock Exchange. The initial desire to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange was denied due to the company’s need to preserve its partner’s control over decision rights.

Should policymakers promote a prescriptive model that tightly regulates the governance structures of firms? Or does a model that allows for greater freedom in designing governance arrangements facilitate a more dynamic economic system?
