Description:

Dr. Blasi will talk about the big ticket ideas surrounding equity compensation, especially how the idea of broad shares of capital ownership has played a key role in the ideas of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He will lay out in stark detail the ten most important research findings relevant to equity practitioners from a century of research on employee shares, and he will talk bluntly about the urgent policy initiatives the current and future Administrations and Congress must undertake to advance equity compensation for all employees.

SPEAKER:

DR. JOSEPH BLASI
J. Robert Beyster Distinguished Professor
Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations

Joseph Blasi's latest book is The Citizen's Share, written with Richard Freeman of Harvard and Douglas Kruse of Rutgers.  It is just out in paperback from Yale University Press and available from on line booksellers. Blasi is the J. Robert Beyster Distinguished Professor and sociologist at the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University where he teaches the undergraduate and graduate courses on corporate governance.  He is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research interests include economic sociology, the social and economic history of the corporation, and public policy. He studies the relationship between the division of rewards, power, and prestige in organizations and performance using large datasets. His books and articles have addressed different systems of work and broad-based employee ownership, profit sharing, and stock options in corporations, countries, industry sectors, (such as Silicon Valley), and historical periods. Another recent book is Shared Capitalism at Work (with Douglas Kruse and Richard Freeman), which was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2010 reporting on a million dollar study of employees with shares funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation and others.  In 2003, he looked at shares in the hundred corporations that invented/sell on/ write software for/make equipment for the Internet, entitled In The Company of Owners (with Douglas Kruse and former Business Week associate editor Aaron Bernstein), published by Basic Books.  Blasi is currently on sabbatical as a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University's Department of Sociology.
