Building Respected Companies: Rethinking Business Leadership and the Purpose of the Firm by Jordi Canals — Free book


The current financial crisis has deep macroeconomic roots, but the dominant view of the firm has made the crisis deeper and more devastating.

This requires a new perspective of what a firm is, what the purpose of the firm in society should be and what the role of the board of directors and senior executives should be
