SEC’s New Rules Undermine Shareholder Rights – Bloomberg

Yale’s Jonathan Macey on the SEC’s proposed rule on proxy advisors:

It is indeed strange that the SEC, whose mission is to protect investors, is putting its thumb forcefully on the scale in favor of companies and against investors. Its proposal would land a one-two punch against corporate democracy and freedom of speech. Not only is the commission demonstrating a deep hostility for the value of dissent. It is also abandoning the idea that the free and open exchange of competing views will result in the triumph of good investment policies over inferior ones.
