History of Corporations

It's been ages since I posted anything. Moving to a new job in a new country while still trying to catchup with my debt to my co-authors is not easy! My apologies to all. Once I'm settled (moving date is August 1st) I hope to get back on track.
In any case, I found this very nice article on the history of corporations that I found very interesting.

More and more I believe that all MBAs should have a history-cum-law course. It would probably overlap a lot with Ethics and maybe Strategy courses but I am sometimes amazed by the lack of historical knowledge on previous crises and the inner workings of a modern corporation.

Have a nice summer!
