“More invaluable advice from Robert A.G. Monks, ‘Mr. Corporate Responsibility’ on both sides of the Atlantic for decades. Monks analyzes the new breed of dysfunctional ‘drone corporations’ whose shares are so widely-held as to be out of all outside control and on automatic pilot driven by insider management. He calls out the most influential trustees of pension funds, endowments, and foundations by name, as those on whom we must now rely to take responsibility, and adds many important proposals for necessary reforms. This book needs to be read by asset managers and trustees worldwide.“
