Regulation and Sarbanes-Oxley

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper will begin by summarizing the arguments for regulation that have been made in the literature. The paper will then consider whether these arguments apply to SOX. The author will suggest that, rather than being based on sound principles, regulation often seems to be a consequence of the public's need for action in response to a crisis, and that this was the case with SOX.
