corporate governance systems are developed to govern corporations, build trust and create sustainable value for all stakeholders. paradoxically, in spite of massive efforts in developing governance systems, corporate scandals are persisting. different studies have strongly recommended business ethics as a solution to this paradox. thus, this study explores if business ethics supports corporate governance practices in a sample of algerian corporations. the study used a mixed methodology; qualitative: since this subject is poorly addressed in the algerian context that requires an exploratory study. quantitative by developing a structural model demonstrating the relationship between business ethics and corporate governance, data for the study were collected by means of a questionnaire distributed on an anonymous basis to corporations’ senior managers in sidi bel abbes district. treatment of collected data is done using two types of analysis: the structural equations modeling approach by using the pls path approach (pls path modeling) and linear regression. the study finds out that business ethics leads to better levels of corporate governance and supports its practices; and the reason is mainly due to an implicit involuntary commitment to laws as a minimum required level of compliance, and that the protection of stakeholders’ rights are the most important corporate governance’s dimension affected by business ethics Show More ... ...

the purpose of this paper is to examine if creditors take account of the firm’s governance attributes to decide the cost of debt. using a sample of 486 us firms over the period 1998-2017, we synthesized governance in six factorial axes. we have demonstrated that the quality audit (independence, frequency of meetings, auditor’s reputation, there is a charter) and financial expertise (percentage of financial experts and ownership of institutional investors) are informative tools creditors that provide information on the quality and reliability of financial reporting. they affect negatively and significantly the cost of debt. moreover, creditors appreciate the presence of independent directors on the board and reduce the cost of debt required. furthermore, the independence of the nomination and compensation committees prove irrelevant attributes of governance perspective because creditors do not reduce their risk of the agency. however, the attributes of the board (the size, the number of meetings, the existence of specialized committees, and meetings) are misunderstood by creditors that will increase the interest rate. in addition, the cost of debt increases with the concentration of managerial ownership and majority shareholders. similarly, attributes reflecting the managerial entrenchment (duality of ceo tenure) are positively correlated to the cost of debt Show More ... ...
