Conference on Creditors and Corporate Governance

Date: 
09.14.2012 - 09.15.2012

Even though it has been understood since the work of Modigliani and Miller in the 1950s that the cashflow rights of holders of debt and equity were not different in kind, the traditional understanding of corporate governance sees control rights radically differently. It draws a sharp line between debt and equity. Shareholders, as the residual owners, hold the reins of power.
