II A CHANGE OF TACK IN CORPORATE GOVERNANCE The overhauling of the corporate governance model requires a parallel revision in the understanding of the human being as an economic agent. As previously mentioned, the dominant theory of corporate governance is premised on the neoclassical economic view of the human being as an individual who manifests his rationality in choosing outcomes which maximize his utility function. The ‘behaviour’ of ﬁrms is nothing else but the result of the aggregate behaviours of such individuals.
Firstly, some provisions of Sarbanes–Oxley are ambiguous and even contradict speciﬁc aspects of state corporate law, such that they may very well invite aggressive litigation; and secondly, Sarbanes– Oxley brings about an abrupt shift from a more ﬂexible state regulation such as that of Delaware, for instance, to a more rigid federal one (Holmstrom and Kaplan, 2003: 22). Sarbanes–Oxley therefore leaves the board with very little room for manoeuvring. In response to this, perhaps, excessively rosy picture of US corporate governance, it may be helpful to refer to the attempt of some economists from the Brookings Institution to calculate the overall cost of the crisis.
If the goal of corporate governance is a good that is truly common and as such is assumed by each and every actor, then corporate governance becomes, in a very real sense, self-governance. Once this has been attained, social dilemmas and principal–agent problems are most likely to disappear. Having assimilated these changes it now becomes clear that the way forward in corporate governance passes through the adoption of an ethical–political viewpoint, with an understanding of the human agent diﬀerent from that advanced by neoclassical economic theory thus far.
