The dark side to Australia's equity revolution: Credit crunch, creditor protection and corporate law
Ritsumeikan law review (2009)
  • Leon Wolff
Abstract

This paper takes a fresh approach to the recent global credit crisis. Rather than interrogating the legal consequences or implications of the credit crisis, this paper asks instead whether or not — and, if so, to what extent — law has CAUSED or COMPOUNDED its effects. And rather than focusing on financial services and regulatory institutions, this paper focuses on corporate law and regulation. The question posed in this paper, in short, is: to what extent is Australian corporate law responsible for the pain of the credit crisis on ordinary Australian investors?
