A question invariably recurs in discussions about corporate reputation: are they cause, consequence, or epiphenomenon? That is: do they have an independent causal effect on corporate performance; are they a consequence of good financial performance? Or are they an incidental by-product? The second day of the conference began with a review of avail- able evidence of the possible financial impact of corporate reputations. The following panelists discussed their prepared papers:
The Value of Corporate Reputation: Evidence from the Equity Markets - Rajendra K. Srivastava, University of Texas at Austin; Thomas H. McInish, Memphis State University; Robert A. Wood, Memphis State University; Anthony J. Capraro, University of Texas at Austin.
