Voter Funded Media: Governance Reform for Corporations and Democracies - A Rock Center Lunch with Mark Latham

Details

November 16, 2009 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Room 85
The Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance presents a luncheon lecture with Mark Latham, Director of VoterMedia.org and Proxy Democracy.

Mark Latham has spent years developing new tools for voters (investors and citizens) to hold elected leaders accountable in corporations and democracies. The financial crisis, changes at the SEC and the decline of mainstream media are opening doors for implementing these ideas.

Mr. Latham received his PhD in Finance from MIT in 1984, supervised by Fischer Black and Robert C. Merton. He was Assistant Professor of Finance at the University of California, Berkeley, until 1989. From 1989 to 1995 he worked for the New York investment banks Salomon Brothers and Merrill Lynch, mainly on derivatives arbitrage trading in Tokyo equity markets. Funded with his Wall Street earnings, he has dedicated himself since 1996 to improving the governance of corporations and democracies. He currently serves on the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission's Investor Advisory Committee, as a representative of individual investors.

Lunch will be provided. This event is free and open to the public, however registration is required.

Registration is now closed.
