Table: International corporate governance - Tentative characterizations of legal and empirical state of large firm incentive based compensation systems in various countries as of 1980-1995:

 

Introduction: Some of the characterizations can be found in Shleifer and Vishny [1996, pages 49-55]. Precautionary statement: The first version of this table was primarily made out of memory and consequently it lacks adequate references and may contain errors about the actual legal and empirical state of the different institutions. As time passes more references will be added..
