CORPORATE GOVERNANCE IN EMERGING MARKET ECONOMIES: THE THEORY BEHIND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND ITS PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN THE BRICS COUNTRIES –ANALYSIS OF THE BRAZIL EXAMPLE
Keywords:Corporate Governance, Emerging Market, Brics, Brazil, Company Management
This article examines the role of corporate governance regulations in the emerging market economies giving a critical analysis of the example of a BRICs country - Brazil. The article presents a study of the theoretical aspects of corporate governance regulations, how they work and what effect they have on the economy of a developing country. The study is motivated by the question how corporate governance can benefit foreign investment into an emerging market country. The findings of the study are illustrated by the Brazilian example of how the corporate governance regulations were introduced into company practice in the country and what effect they had on the economic situation. This analysed example shows what problems were identified in the process and various ways to overcome them to provide more confidence to the foreign capital investment into the country.
