IIT engineering students are designing a cost-effective universal power

UPS for computers in the Law Faculty's Student Union.

Core Institutions that Support Strong Securities Markets (PDF)
By Bernard Black. ABSTRACT: A strong securities markets rests on a complex
network of supporting institutions that ensure that minority shareholders
(i) receive good information about the value of a companys business,
and (ii) can have confidence that a companys managers and controlling
shareholders won't cheat them out of most or all of the value of their
investment. A country whose laws and related institutions fail on either
count cannot develop a strong stock market, forcing firms to rely on
internal financing or bank financing -- both of which have important
shortcomings. This article explains why these two investor protection
issues are critical, related, and hard to solve, and discusses which
laws and institutions are most important for each. This paper is a shorter
version of The Legal and Industrial Preconditions for Strong Securities
Markets, 48 UCLA L. REV. (forthcoming 2000).
