Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review


O. C. Nwaeze


When Carrier, at then Presidential Candidate Donald Trump's bequest, decided to keep 1000 jobs in Indiana, it did so at substantial economic costs. O.C. Nwaeze examines the millions of dollars in lost profit in terms of the fiduciary duty of Carrier's board members to the shareholders in the company. However, given the ownership situation of Carrier, Nwaeze ultimately concludes that there is no breach of fiduciary duty.
