An article discusses issues in corporate governance raised by the financial crisis. It is argued that the primary causes were not failures in general corporate governance, but international macroeconomic tendencies and failures in the regulation of the financial sector specifically. Key issues to be considered by companies and regulators, however, are the composition and competency of boards, risk management, and executive remuneration.
