Jerry Davis’ research is broadly concerned with corporate governance and the effects of finance on society. Recent writings examine why companies choose the kinds of directors they do and what effect they have; changes in the ownership and control of US firms; how conflicts of interest affect the ways mutual funds vote their shares in annual elections; the effects of social movements on what companies do; and how ideas about corporate social responsibility have evolved to meet changes in the structures and geographic footprint of multinational corporations
