Sample text

In 1943, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) attempted to help disenfranchised shareholders by passing Rule 14a-8, which required the board of directors to include certain proposals from shareholders in its annual proxy solicitation. The SEC staff saw the small, long-term shareholder as the principal beneficiary of the rule. Presumably, the rule was designed to protect the individual shareholder against the corporation’s management. The directors, viewed as the shareholders’ representatives (or fiduciaries), were entrusted with the task of mediating potential conflicts between management and shareholders (Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, Hearings 1943; Nicholas 2002; Tsuk Mitchell 2006).

And politicians were in no mood to disturb American business during one of its greatest periods of expansion. With public shareholders largely irrelevant to business, the law could do little to invigorate them. 61 Sources: Kuznets (1961, 248, Table 39) for 1901–1956; Sametz (1964, 455, Table 4) for 1957–1962. 28 Background and Perspectives on Corporate Governance to finance operations, showing the ratios of internal to total sources of funding of nonfinancial corporations from 1901 to 1962. The table shows that internal funding sources provided a majority of all corporate funding well through the middle of the twentieth century, peaking in the Depression years when external funding was unavailable but otherwise remaining substantial.

Other corporations bought their stock back from the market to achieve the same result. The consequence was that by the 1930s industrial corporations no longer needed their stockholders (who had largely deserted them following the crash anyway), but instead could and did live off their retained earnings. This practice persisted largely until the late 1960s and created the conditions for mid-century managerialism and its accompanying modes of corporate governance. These developments are examined in the next section.
