Buy Article:

$43.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Habib (2008) shows that financial transparency, but not governance transparency, is related to efficiency in capital allocation. I argue that governance transparency is more likely to facilitate capital allocation in declining industries where agency problems intensify. Empirical evidence from a sample of 39 countries supports this argument.
