This dissertation documents my exploration of the modern corporation in the past few years. I outline a detailed picture of major U.S. public corporations in more recent decades from two perspectives: ownership structure and internal nepotism. I also study the private information carried in the CEOs’ unexpected option exercise behavior. This dissertation aims to deepen our understanding of the modern corporation and CEOs’ option exercise behavior.
