unSILOed with Greg LaBlanc #77 - Colin Mayer

It's been said that the most important invention of modern times is the corporation. And Colin Mayer agrees, saying the corporation is a “remarkable invention for bringing together the capacity and capability of mankind to work together to create phenomenal outcomes.”

Colin is a professor at the Saïd School at the University of Oxford, and was also the Dean between 2006 and 2011, helping to get the school off the ground.

Colin sits down with Greg to discuss why the history of the corporation is so understudied, balancing shareholders and managers within a corporation, and the benefits of family firms.
