Quarterly Essay 10: Bad Company
The cult of the CEO

In Bad Company Gideon Haigh scrutinises the way we have turned CEOs into tin gods. In a tough-minded, vigorous demolition job on the culture that produced the cult of the CEO, Haigh writes a mini-history of business and shows how the classic traditions of capitalism are mocked by the managerialism of the present.
