Social Enterprise Law synopsis
Social institutions represent a new type of enterprise dedicated to making profits for their owners and their benefits to society. The Social Institutions Act provides tools that allow them to raise the capital they need to thrive.
The Social Institutions Act coordinates innovation in contracts and corporate governance to strong protection measures against insiders, such as sacrificing the environment in the pursuit of short-term profits. Creating a stable balance between financial returns and public benefits will allow social entrepreneurs to partner with influential investors who share their vision of a dual goal.
Brackman-Reiser and Dean explain how new legal techniques can allow social companies access to capitalmarkets, including non-traditional sources such as group financing. Through his clear vision of complex areas of law, the book explains how to protect a social task from an acquisition or bankruptcy disorder.
It also explains why, since the measures available to measure the impact of social missions on individuals and communities are more developed, such legal innovations will continue to be stronger. By providing a comprehensive survey of US laws and a bold vision of how to reform legal institutions around the world, this book offers new insights and approaches to help social institutions increase the capital they need to thrive.
Provides a rich guide for students, business people, investors and practitioners.
