Unseen Wealth by Margaret M. Blair
Book DescriptionIntangibles are harder to measure, harder to quantify, often more difficult to manage, evaluate, and account for than tangible assets. There is no common language for sharing information about intangible sources of value, and the language used tends to be descriptive rather than quantitative and concrete. Unseen Wealth stresses the importance of developing standards for identifying, measuring, and accounting for intangible assets, and recommends actions to government and business for improving the quality and quantity of available information about intangible investments. The book articulates a three-pronged set of reforms to help companies construct better business and reporting models, improve the quality of financial reporting, and clarify intellectual property right laws. Unseen Wealth was developed by the Brookings Task Force on Intangibles, which includes business leaders, consultants, accounting professionals, economists, intellectual property lawyers, and policy analysts.

Books By Author Margaret M. Blair
New Relationship, Paperback (September 1999)
Human capital and organizational capital are increasingly important as a source of value in many firms. But even as this is happening, organizational forms and employment relationships appear to be changing in ways that reduce loyalty and commitment and encourage mobility on the part of employees.
Ownership and Control, Paperback (February 1994)» View all books by Margaret M. Blair
The objective of this work is to examine the intellectual history, politics, and empirical evidence behind corporate governance arguments. Blair argues that the suspicion that financial interests may be at odds with social goals lurks behind some of the more heated debates.
