In Infectious Greed, two leading financial experts offer a powerful new explanation of why the corporate scandals happened—and propose market-driven reforms that don’t just “patch” the system but fix it for generations to come. Discover how the system came to provide massive incentives for malfeasance by CEOs, boards, auditors, analysts, and investment houses—and learn how those “bad” incentives can be replaced by even more powerful incentives for integrity.
