David Glick, an Assistant Professor in the department, recently published an article titled “Safety in Numbers: Mainstream-Seeking Diffusion in Response to Executive Compensation Regulations” in the Quarterly Journal of Political Science. In this article Professor Glick uses variations in the timing of annual reporting to study how public companies learn from each other when implementing complicated regulations. He finds, among other things, that the ability to see others’ executive compensation disclosures helps companies learn how to be relatively less forthcoming with their own disclosures.
