Summary "This book examines the failure of "gatekeepers"--Corporate directors, regulators, auditors, lawyers, investment bankers, and business journalists - to stand between corporate misconduct and the public interest. Prominent scholars and corporate leaders argue that market pressures have made gatekeepers too focused on financial self-interest at the expense of the public good. Stronger professional standards are prescribed."--Jacket.
