Corporate governance, which has had to be accepted ever since the first financial crisis triggered by one company that had such devastating effects on the capital markets in 2000, nonetheless found itself challenged once again by the derivatives crisis of 2008-2009 that rounded upon the financial markets world-wide. At the same time, our world is facing another crisis that could also devastate the globe if the problem is not addresed — we are talking of the recent events in various countries that fall squarely on what we call the environment and climate change.https://www.bworld.com.ph/main/content.php?id=6667
