Governance in the post-industrial transition

‘Mature firms face an onslaught on multiple fronts. The exponential growth in computing, storage and communications capacity we have seen over the last few decades is giving rise to a wide range of powerful technologies. ... Coupled with easy access to funding (due in part to low interest rates), this is lowering the threshold for new entrants disrupting established industry players.’

‘Whether audits are for investors, directors or shareholders the auditor’s role is to judge the integrity of director accounts. It is ethically unacceptable for any law judge to be influenced or paid by the people they are judging. However, this conflicted toxic relationship is what regulators promote.’
