The Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Program invites students to attend a virtual debate on stakeholder capitalism co-sponsored by the Financial Times and the London Business School. Professor Lucian Bebchuk will present the view that, due to the structural incentives of corporate leaders, the promise of stakeholder capitalism is largely illusory and that external regulations would therefore be necessary to address stakeholder concerns. Professor Alex Edmans will argue that if and when stakeholder capitalism is done the right way, it can deliver substantial benefits for shareholders and society. The debate will be moderated by Gillian Tett, Chair of the Financial Times’ Editorial Board. Bebchuk and Edmans will make initial presentations and subsequently challenge each other on their positions, and Tett will then lead Q&A with questions of her own as well as fielding some from the audience.
