Synopsis: Recent financial scandals have highlighted the topic of corporate governance and the need for greater transparency and veracity of economic financial communication provided by companies, particularly by listed companies. In recent years, also due to the effect of different collapses of multinational companies held to be solid, the issue of corporate governance is again in the spotlight. The failure of governance and accounting mechanisms of companies such as Enron, WorldCom, Parmalat, arriving at the Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs scandals, as well as the structural changes which have regarded the financial system and, in particular, the growing recourse to the capital markets for the finding of funding sources, have led to the need for greater transparency. This book addresses the topic of public services, which not only cover an important role in the attitude to the satisfaction of the needs of collective interest but also constitute a particular category of assets whose use is of important social interest in modern States, under the occupational profile, of investments and of economic development.
The study, conducted by the authors, allowed them to investigate the communication quality of companies operating in the public utilities sector listed on the Italian stock exchange.
