Show Summary Details


The study provides new interesting results that are important for the ongoing debate about the best possible corporate governance system. Although, recently, the Continental European system of corporate governance has somehow fallen into disrepute, the system has some clear advantages as compared to the main competing system, the Anglo‐American system. One of these advantages is that the average firm in Continental European does not have to rely on costly dividend signalling.
