Curriculum Vitae

“When it comes to monitoring people who manage other people’s money or other resources, agency theory highlights one simple fact: that nothing – not (i) state-of-the-art markets, financial incentives, and corporate governance mechanisms; nor (ii) comprehensive regulation and effective monitoring by governmental agencies; nor (iii) relentless and ruthless media and public sentiment – can perfectly substitute for simple human integrity.”
