What does CORPORATE GOVERNANCE mean? CORPORATE GOVERNANCE meaning - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE definition - CORPORATE GOVERNANCE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Corporate governance broadly refers to the mechanisms, processes and relations by which corporations are controlled and directed. Governance structures and principles identify the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation (such as the board of directors, managers, shareholders, creditors, auditors, regulators, and other stakeholders) and includes the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. Corporate governance includes the processes through which corporations' objectives are set and pursued in the context of the social, regulatory and market environment. Governance mechanisms include monitoring the actions, policies, practices, and decisions of corporations, their agents, and affected stakeholders. Corporate governance practices are affected by attempts to align the interests of stakeholders. Interest in the corporate governance practices of modern corporations, particularly in relation to accountability, increased following the high-profile collapses of a number of large corporations during 2001–2002, most of which involved accounting fraud; and then again after the recent financial crisis in 2008. Corporate scandals of various forms have maintained public and political interest in the regulation of corporate governance. In the U.S., these include Enron and MCI Inc. (formerly WorldCom). Their demise led to the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, a U.S. federal law intended to restore public confidence in corporate governance. Comparable failures in Australia (HIH, One.Tel) are associated with the eventual passage of the CLERP 9 reforms. Similar corporate failures in other countries stimulated increased regulatory interest (e.g., Parmalat in Italy). In contemporary business corporations, the main external stakeholder groups are shareholders, debtholders, trade creditors and suppliers, customers, and communities affected by the corporation's activities. Internal stakeholders are the board of directors, executives, and other employees. Much of the contemporary interest in corporate governance is concerned with mitigation of the conflicts of interests between stakeholders. In large firms where there is a separation of ownership and management and no controlling shareholder, the principal–agent issue arises between upper-management (the "agent") which may have very different interests, and by definition considerably more information, than shareholders (the "principals"). The danger arises that, rather than overseeing management on behalf of shareholders, the board of directors may become insulated from shareholders and beholden to management. This aspect is particularly present in contemporary public debates and developments in regulatory policy. Ways of mitigating or preventing these conflicts of interests include the processes, customs, policies, laws, and institutions which affect the way a company is controlled. An important theme of governance is the nature and extent of corporate accountability. A related discussion at the macro level focuses on the effect of a corporate governance system on economic efficiency, with a strong emphasis on shareholders' welfare. This has resulted in a literature focussed on economic analysis. Corporate governance has also been more narrowly defined as "a system of law and sound approaches by which corporations are directed and controlled focusing on the internal and external corporate structures with the intention of monitoring the actions of management and directors and thereby, mitigating agency risks which may stem from the misdeeds of corporate officers." One source defines corporate governance as "the set of conditions that shapes the ex post bargaining over the quasi-rents generated by a firm." The firm itself is modelled as a governance structure acting through the mechanisms of contract. Here corporate governance may include its relation to corporate finance.

Two-strike Rule
Executive remuneration is a very contentious issue. There is a fine balance between remuneration that is high enough to attract and retain competent and skilled directors versus excessive remuneration. Shareholders have previously been powerless in terms of influencing or executive remuneration. However, the Australian Corporations Act was amended in 2011 to give shareholders some power over executive remuneration. This is done in terms of the two-strike rule. This rule gives shareholders the power to spill the board if they are not happy with the remuneration report. That is, ELIGIBLE shareholders have the power to ‘fire’ or relieve directors of their board positions. There are three things you need to know about the two-rule strike rule. The first is, Who are eligible shareholders? Eligible shareholders are those shareholders who are not employed with the organisation in senior positions and do not have any conflict of interest. The two-strike rule can be initiated by eligible shareholders voting ‘No’ to the remuneration report. You also need to note the percentages required to successfully initiate the two-strike rule. 25 per cent of eligible shareholders need to vote ‘No’ to the remuneration in year one AND in year two. At the same meeting in year two, 50 per cent of eligible shareholders need to vote in favour of the spill. And once the two-strike rule has been successfully initiated, you need to know which directors are subject to the spill vote. All directors on the board are subject to the spill vote with the exception of Managing Director. Candidates have struggled with the difference between a managing director of MD and the CEO of a company. The Managing Director and CEO are basically the same person. The difference is that an MD holds a position on the board while a CEO does not. There are two things that need to happen once a spill is successful. The first is that the organisation needs to continue. So, to facilitate continuity, two directors plus the MD need to remain on the board until the new board is appointed. The shareholders must elect a new board within 3 months or 90 days. To recap, the two-strike rule gives shareholders of companies the power to influence directors’ remuneration. That is through the ability to spill the board provided certain requirements are satisfied.

Making cross-border dispute resolution mechanisms effective
Disputes could bring with them costs and potential reputation risk. Thus, in the BEPS world, it is vital to make cross-border dispute resolution mechanisms effective. In line with OECD’s guidance, apart from the continuing political will, India could certainly do with some suitable modifications to treaty provisions, especially the inclusion of Article 9(2) in all treaties and gearing up for bilateral APAs.

Community through Trans-formative Conflict Resolution: Patrick Ashton at TEDxFortWayne 2013
What if fighting and violence were preventable -- like epidemics of disease -- and we just didn't know it? It's not conflict itself that's the problem. Like fire, it can be either destructive or productive. We just need to know how to deal with it constructively. Using techniques of conflict resolution and community mediation, we can create the basis for citizen engagement and democratic dialogue. We can ignite a fire to light our communities and our society. Patrick Ashton is Director of Peace and Conflict Studies at IPFW. He has certificates in community mediation and mediation training. He has taught and written on conflict resolution and community for over 30 years, facilitating over 30 workshops in this field. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

McCahery University of Amsterdam 2006 OECD Policy Dialogue on Corporate Governance in India New Delhi February 16-17, 2006 ,Setting the Theme Related Party Transactions Play important and legitimate role in economy But if left unchecked, could foster opportunism Points (1) Through related party transactions, controlling shareholders and managers may extract private benefits of control (2) Potential for abuse and high cost of regulating these transactions has led to a range of regulatory strategies (3) Strategies and techniques include: mandatory disclosure, board approval, fiduciary duties, shareholder voting ,Regulating Related Party Transactions LEGAL FRAMEWORK for Related Party Transactions: Mandatory Disclosure Duty of Loyalty Board Approval Shareholder Voting Availability of external finance increases and leads to financial development ,Why Should One Care About Related Party Transactions? Related party transactions involve transactions between a parent company and subsidiary; employees; an enterprise and its principal owners, management or members of their immediate families; and affiliates (OECD Principles; IAS 24 (9); FASB Statement no. 57) Related Party Transactions can take various forms including: Transfer pricing; Asset stripping; Inter-company loans and guarantees; Sale of receivables to Special Purpose Vehicle; Leasing or licensing agreement between a parent and subsidiary Illicit related party transactions limit the availability of external finance and leads to financial underdevelopment ,Mr. James Mr. James owns 90% of Seller Co. shares Mr. James owns 60% of Buyer Co. shares Seller Co. Buyer Co. Buyer Co. buys equipment from Seller Co. Typical Related Party Transaction Simple transaction (purchase of equipment) between two entities (“Buyer” and “Seller”) controlled by the same shareholder (“Mr James”), who is on the board of both firms. Key Problem: The proposed transaction may have a business purpose. For example, purchasing the equipment may lead to expanded sales. James is on both sides of the transaction and may benefit if Buyer acquires overpriced equipment from Seller. ,Legal Regulation of Related Party Transactions Problem: How do we distinguish between those valuable transactions that yield benefits for companies and those abusive transactions which are influenced by a conflict of interest and can be costly for investors?

Yanis Varoufakis: Democracy Under Siege, Carnegie Conversations
What happens when a Professor of Economics gets his hands on the economic levers of a country in the eye of the financial storm? Yanis Varoufakis' seven month stint as Greece's Minister of Finance took him into the heart of the Eurogroup, the IMF, and the continent's top decision-making bodies. With bluntness and force, he put the case for a different solution to Greece’s ills and accused the country’s creditors of terrorism. Telling Bloomberf “I wouldprefer to cut my arm off" rather than accept a bailout that did not involve debt restructuring, Varoufakis did not make friends among the Eurocrats. Sharing his first-hand view of the global financial system and what is means for ordinary citizens and governments when things go wrong, Yanis Varoufakis will discuss his experience at the intersection of politics and economics in theory and practice. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse

Otto Scharmer: "Ego System to Eco System Economies" | Talks At Google
Otto Scharmer is a Senior Lecturer at MIT, co-founder of the Presencing Institute. He also chairs the MIT IDEAS program for cross-innovation and co-founded the Global Wellbeing Lab. Otto introduced the concept of “presencing” — learning from the emerging future — in his bestselling books Theory U and Presence. Using his experience working with some of the world's most accomplished leaders and innovators, Otto Scharmer shows in Theory U how groups and organizations can develop seven leadership capacities in order to create a future that would not otherwise be possible. -- Our Time is Now We have entered an age of disruption. Financial collapse, climate change, resource depletion, and a growing gap between rich and poor are but a few of the signs. Otto Scharmer asks, why do we collectively create results nobody wants? Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our economic logic and operating system from an obsolete “ego-system” focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole. Filled with real-world examples, this thought-provoking guide presents proven practices for building a new economy that is more resilient, intentional, inclusive, and aware. -- Otto Scharmer is a Senior Lecturer at MIT, a Thousand Talents Program Professor at Tsinghua University, and co-founder of the Presencing Institute. He also chairs the MIT IDEAS program for cross-innovation in China and Indonesia. Otto introduced the concept of “presencing” — learning from the emerging future — in his bestselling books Theory U and Presence (the latter co-authored with P. Senge et al.). His book Leading From the Emerging Future: From Ego-system to Eco-system Economies (co-authored with K. Kaufer) applies the concept of mindfulness to the transformation of capitalism. In 2015 he co-founded the MITx u.lab, a massive open online course (MOOC) that pioneers a blended o2o (online-to-offline) learning platform to enable transformational leadership learning for tens of thousands of participants in self-organized communities across 185 countries. Otto earned his diploma (with distinction) and PhD (summa cum laude) from Witten/Herdecke University in Germany. In 2015 he received the Jamieson Prize for Excellence in Teaching at MIT.

Heather Boushey: Finding Time: The Economics of Work-Life Conflict | Talks at Google
Employers today are demanding more and more of employees’ time. And from campaign barbecues to the blogosphere, workers across the United States are raising the same worried question: How can I get ahead at my job while making sure my family doesn’t fall behind? Heather Boushey argues that resolving work–life conflicts is as vital for individuals and families as it is essential for realizing the country’s productive potential. The federal government, however, largely ignores the connection between individual work–life conflicts and more sustainable economic growth. The consequence: business and government treat the most important things in life—health, children, elders—as matters for workers to care about entirely on their own time and dime. That might have worked in the past, but only thanks to a hidden subsidy: the American Wife, a behind-the-scenes, stay-at-home fixer of what economists call market failures. When women left the home—out of desire and necessity—the old system fell apart. Families and the larger economy have yet to recover. But change is possible. Finding Time presents detailed innovations to help Americans find the time they need and help businesses attract more productive workers. A policy wonk with working-class roots and a deep understanding of the stresses faced by families up and down the income ladder, Heather Boushey demonstrates with clarity and compassion that economic efficiency and equity do not have to be enemies. They can be reconciled if we have the vision to forge a new social contract for business, government, and private citizens. This talk was moderated by David Barry.

5 Things You Need To Know About Corporate Governance in India
5 Things You Need To Know About Corporate Governance in India Read http://bit.ly/2C6UuGo To Know More! Before knowing the #principles of #Corporate #Governance, let us first start with understanding what is Corporate Governance and what is Corporate Governance #meaning. It is a system of #rules, practices, and processes to control a #company, by which a firm is directed and controlled. Corporate governance in #India essentially involves balancing the interests of a company with many of its stakeholders like shareholders, management, customers, suppliers, financiers, government and the community. The role of shareholders in governance is to appoint the directors and the auditors, so as to satisfy themselves having an appropriate governance structure in place. More recently in Corporate Governance, it’s pillars of success have been acknowledged such as accountability, fairness, transparency, assurance, leadership and stakeholder management. Corporate governance focuses not only on shareholders but on all the stakeholders of the company. Under Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement of SEBI, the scope of corporate governance can be stipulated under various chapters of the Companies Act 2013. The objective and importance of it is to ensure that a company is working efficaciously, as it involves balancing the interests of a company's and the community. Having good governance improves transparency, efficiency and increases the investor’s trust in the company. It focuses on the stakeholders and not just the shareholders. Shareholders are the persons who have invested in the company by way of purchasing its shares, whereas stakeholders are the people who have an interest in the company such as employees, customers, government, shareholders etc. It governs the corporate behavior of a company and is a key component of communicating a company’s behavior to the investors and community at large. Its need felt, because of the increasing non-compliance of the standards related to the financial reporting and accountability by the board of directors and management which caused huge losses to the investors of the company. Many big companies fall out because of failure in governance which is supposed to draw a distinction between the powers of the management and the board of directors. A good structure needs to have appropriate and adequate governance processes and procedures, which builds a better financial strength of a company by maintaining a competitive environment. Its policy works on the parameters of transparency and disclosure in the company, which thereby minimizes the risk of mishappenings like scams that we have often seen nowadays. It provides you with a code of conduct to follow in an organization, where the work ethics are maintained and followed both internally and externally in the domestic and global market. Companies Act 2013 has ordered the companies to form the following committees to look after the working and managing the affairs of a company. These committees are: Audit Committee Nomination and Remuneration Committee Stakeholder Relationship Committee Corporate Social Responsibility Committee Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) felt that there was a need for Corporate Governance In India but there were some issues encountered in its system which include of: Getting the board right Performance evaluation of directors True Independence of Directors Removal of Independent Directors Accountability to Stakeholders Executive Compensation Founders' Control and Succession Planning Risk Management Privacy and Data Protection Board's Approach to Corporate Social Responsibility Though from the above top 10 issues, there are 5 common important issues that have been identified such as: Conflicts of interest Oversight issues Accountability issues Transparency Ethics violations For having a good governance, the responsibility of the Board of directors got increased and subsequently, the accountability of the board of directors also increased.

SRA Code Of Conduct - Chapter 07 - Management of Your Business
Management of Your Business It would be too obvious to say that managing a firm can be difficult work. However, despite the overwhelming obviousness of that statement, it is still very true. This chapter is about the management and supervision of your firm of in-house practice and our corresponding video takes a broad look at what the SRA is telling you. To run a business everyone needs to play a part, but the ultimate responsibility for the management rests with the manager, who will be expected to make the 'big decisions' for the firm. While individual lawyers must ensure that they themselves are complying with the Code of Conduct, managers must make sure that the firms as a whole is doing so, not just as a collection of lawyers, but also as an entity in itself. If managers do not do their jobs correctly, then the firm and its employees will all suffer as a result.

Transfer Pricing Issues on International Group Financing - Seminar
DDTC Training Programs 2015 Inter-company financial transactions and the application of the arm’s length principle thereto have been under closer scrutiny by tax authorities in recent years. This phenomenon is largely dictated by inter alia, two factors: a. The relative importance and materiality that financial transactions have in multinational groups, and b. The increased awareness of tax authorities who after having dealt primarily for many years with transfer pricing issues related to goods and services, are now getting their arms around the complex issues surrounding the pricing of financial transactions On the other hand, the issue of charging of interest related to the internal financing transaction is also an issue BEPS Action Plan 4, which would impose a financial transaction equivalent to interest payments and other financial instruments (Limit Base Erosion via deductions and Other Financial Interest Payments). However, the tax treatment of financial instruments in each country is different, so that the potential at emergence of the issue Hybrid Financial Instruments. This situation is contrary to the principle of the single tax principle, so that the OECD and the G20 back reserved it in BEPS Action Plan 2 (neutralize the Effects of Hybrid Mistach Arrangements). Based on such things, “Transfer Pricing Issues on International Group Financing Seminars” will take a part in explain how the company and the tax authorities can determine the right price in the right price to be applied in cases of inter-company loans, in order to satisfy the principle of arm’s length, applying transfer pricing methods and other approaches if required.

Lemonade CEO Daniel Schreiber on the Insurance Industry | CB Insights 2017
"The insurance players aren't the problem, the game is. Lemonade changes that." In beginning to think about Lemonade we thought about the prickliest questions plaguing insurance: - What is it about insurance that makes people not like the sector? - Why is it sold, not bought? - Why is it something that people perceive as a necessary evil rather than a social good? At its core, one of the challenges insurance faces is a fundamental conflict of interest: when you, the insured make a claim, by denying that claim, the insurance provider is making money. That pits insurer against insured. It also creates a snowball effect - people know that insurers will benefit from denying claims so they will embellish claims to make sure they get paid. The result? Fraud and mistrust. Lemonade’s goal is to overcome this disconnect and turn insurance from a necessary evil into a social good.

Transfer Pricing Forum
Brand Finance, Mazars and Praxity’s Transfer Pricing Forum took place on the 22nd of June at Brand Exchange. Tax and Finance representatives, from some of the leading fashion, spirit, property and construction brands, plus key media titles, joined the debate that focused on the future of brands and intangibles in a post BEPS environment. The event explored the current debate and possible implications of the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plans on transfer pricing for intangibles. We examined the key issues and challenges arising from the OECD's transfer pricing guidelines and the proposed amendments from the perspective of tax authorities, practitioners and multinational enterprises (MNEs). Prior to guidance scheduled to be finalised this year, the event provided anyone with an interest in intellectual property management an overview and insight in to what is a complex and contentious area.

State Capacity and Development Goals: Luciana Cingolani
http://www.merit.unu.edu/research/ipd/workshop/ The notion of state capacity has attracted renewed interest over the last few years, in particular in the study of violent conflict. Yet, state capacity is conceived differently depending on whether the interest lies in the state's power to discourage violent conflict, in its ability to administer efficiently, or simply in its capacity to foster economic development. In this article, we examine the links between state capacity and bureaucratic autonomy, and discuss the conditions under which these converge or differ. Using panel data from 1990-2010 and a novel indicator of bureaucratic autonomy, we then estimate the separate effect of state capacity and bureaucratic autonomy on two of the MDGs indicators: child mortality and the prevalence of tuberculosis. The evidence suggests that a) bureaucratic autonomy has a stronger impact than commonly used measures of state capacity; and b) that both bureaucratic autonomy and state capacity play a more important role for these indicators than traditional macroeconomic variables. Transcript: This paper that we wrote with Kaj Thomsson and Denis de Crombrugghe is an empirical effort to try to connect different notions of state capacity with development goals in a way that hasn't hopefully been done before. We distinguish between state capacity and bureaucratic autonomy, two things that normally in academia get confused a lot, and we measure the impacts of each on two Millenium Development Goals, or Goal Indicators, which are child mortality and the prevalence of tuberculosis. How many countries does your research cover? This is a typical macro-data paper. That means that we basically assess countries all over the world over a period of 20 years, between 1990 and 2010. So it's an econometric paper, a quantitative paper and every region of the world is more or less equally represented in the study. About 80 countries in total. How do you define 'bureaucratic autonomy'? How and why did you create this new indicator? Well, we created this indicator out of necessity, to be really honest. We find that current data on bureaucratic autonomy is really limited. I mean, more and more are coming up, as new developments, but actually they're normally still limited to a narrow range of countries, normally in Europe or OECD countries. And some of them are really good but they're only cross-countries so they're not really historical. So for that, we needed to create it. And the way we defined bureaucratic autonomy for this indicator is how correlated are political cycles, so the cycles of the politicians who are elected in a democracy, and the cycles of independent bureaucratic agencies, so agencies that should be in a way insulated from political cycles. So the more these two cycles can be disentangled, then the more bureaucratic autonomy there is. Would your results be useful for other MDGs as well? I think they can be replicated for other MDGs but of course we need to find MDGs where we can say that these are indisputable political goals. So even if an autocratic ruler or a very corrupt leader has an interest in keeping things the way they are, and not improving the indicators, so a situation like that would not really work for our measures. They really need to be indisputable goals for everyone in the society. How important will 'Governance' be in the post-2015 agenda? I think in the future MDGs'agenda, Governance will be at the centre. Governance will be extremely important and development indicators of welfare, infrastructure, will always remain to be important but we need to look closer at things like the civil service, the state, rule of law, democracy. We need to be better at breaking down all these concepts and try to find the smallest component possible so that we can get as narrow as possible indicators. In this paper we go deeper into the governance dimensions and we open the black box of the state. We really try to get into it and try to connect it to development goals in a meaningful way.

The Department of Everything Else (1993)
This 1993 video highlights the fascinating and often unknown history of the U.S. Department of the Interior. In 1789 Congress created three Executive Departments: Foreign Affairs (later in the same year renamed State), Treasury, and War. It also provided for an Attorney General and a Postmaster General. Domestic matters were apportioned by Congress among these departments. The idea of setting up a separate department to handle domestic matters was put forward on numerous occasions. It wasn't until March 3, 1849, the last day of the 30th Congress, that a bill was passed to create the Department of the Interior to take charge of the Nation's internal affairs: The Interior Department had a wide range of responsibilities entrusted to it: the construction of the national capital's water system, the colonization of freed slaves in Haiti, exploration of western wilderness, oversight of the District of Columbia jail, regulation of territorial governments, management of hospitals and universities, management of public parks, and the basic responsibilities for Indians, public lands, patents, and pensions. In one way or another all of these had to do with the internal development of the Nation or the welfare of its people.

States of Fragility: Post-2015 Ambitions
More than 1 billion people live in countries affected by armed conflict or by the fragility of their societies. Fragile states are often vulnerable to conflict because their populations tend to see their governments as ineffective, illegitimate, or both. As a group, they are the ones that lag furthest behind in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals. Join us on Friday, March 27, to discuss a new report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, “States of Fragility 2015: Meeting Post-2015 Ambitions.” Learn more: http://www.usip.org/events/states-of-fragility-post-2015-ambitions

IMF expects Korean economy to grow 2.7% in 2017
IMF, 한국 경제 성장률 2.7% 상향 조정 The International Monetary Fund has revised up its growth outlook for Korea for this year. While the upward revision is in line with the latest forecasts from other major local financial institutions, experts say it's probably too early to feel overly optimistic about the future. Kim Min-ji reports. The IMF expects the Korean economy to expand 2-point-7 percent this year. That's up from its previous forecast of 2-point-6 percent made in March. The revision reflects the Bank of Korea's latest growth estimates,... but also an improvement in the global economy,.... which the IMF forecasts to grow 3-point-5 percent this year,... up a tenth of a percentage point from its earlier projection. Other bodies have also recently raised their outlooks for Korea. The state-run Korea Development Institute now forecasts 2-point-6 percent growth,... up from 2-point-4 percent -- and the Bank of Korea also at 2-point-6 percent, up zero-point-one percentage point. The upward revisions have been attributed to a recovery in the country's exports,... driven by a modest recovery in the global economy. Korea's exports have been on an upward trend since last November,... putting an end to nearly two years of decline. But it's a little too early to say Korea's recovery momentum is strong -- as the local economy still faces a number of obstacles in its path. There are concerns that more protectionism from the U.S. could weigh on Korea's export recovery. Plus, if U.S. interest rates keep rising and eventually overtake Korea's,... that could trigger a capital outflow. At home,... geopolitical risks on the Korean peninsula could take a toll on financial stability,... and hurt already dampened consumer sentiment and investment. "Korea has been mired in a political scandal since late last year,... so we haven't been able to step up investment by conglomerates,... and corporate restructuring program has been slow. Korea still needs to be able to sort these problems out,... before it can take the economy to the next level. It might just be on a cycle of rebound after hitting the bottom." Some experts say that because Korea's recent recovery is due in part to global factors,... it's unclear what the future may hold. For now,... they say the new administration, which takes over in May, will have to focus on risk management and maintaining flexible fiscal policies to cushion potential risks at home and abroad.
