Our research results consist of three reports:
(1) The Report on "A Comparative Study of Corporate Govenance : Part 1" March, 2000
(2) The Report on "A Comparative Study of Corporate Governance : Part 2" April, 2000
(3)The Report on the Questionnaires for Presidents, Auditors and Institutional Investors about "Changes in Business Environments and What Japanese Corporate Governance will be like in the Future" March, 2000.
The important findings obtained by our research are as follows:
(1) The concept of the firm has both good points and bad points. There is no one best concept of the firm.
(2) Viewed in efficiency and legitimacy, we cannot generalize that Anglo-American unitary concept of the firm is superior to Japanese multiple concept of the firm and German dual concept of the firm.
(3) The profitability of Japanese style of organization is lower than that of US and German styles of organization, but the ratio of productivity of the former is higher than that of the latter.
(4) The legitimacy of the behavior of top management is based on shareholder's entrust in Britain and the US, stakeholder's consensus in Germany and contribution to the development of an enterprize in Japan. It differs with the nation.
(5) The reform of corporate governance varies from nation to nation, such as public and autonomous regulations in the US, autonomous regulation in Britain and public regulation in Japan. These differences arise from what stakeholders ought to be.
