Has Sarbanes-Oxley Harmed Entrepreneurs?

Critics contend that Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) has placed a disproportionate burden on small publicly traded firms, while supporters contend that the benefits from enhanced transparency will outweigh the costs. The Securities and Exchange Commission is currently considering whether or not to relax certain sections of SOX for small firms. In a new paper, Professor Rick Geddes of Cornell University examines the stock returns of a sample of firms around the time of SOX’s passage, and finds SOX has disproportionately harmed small firms.
Alex J. Pollock, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and Irwin M. Stelzer, Director of Hudson’s Center for Economic Policy Studies, will comment.
