NY Times Book Review: Money for Nothing

Today’s New York Times reviews a new book, Money for Nothing: How the Failure of Corporate Boards Is Ruining American Business and Costing Us Trillions, from a former investment banker, John Gillespie, at Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns, and the co-founder of, who worked at Dow Jones and Time Inc., David Zweig .

The book apparently looks at U.S. boards and shareholder rights, and posits that one of the reasons for the financial crisis was directors asleep at the wheel (or just warming seats). Also looks at the myth of shareholders rights, looking at actions by some of the failed companies for illustrations.

If you have any suggestions on how this site could be useful to folks interested in equity compensation plans, please let me know.
