When I was invited to prepare a contribution to this conference in honor of Bob Clark, I was encouraged to offer some follow-up observations on the essay that Reinier Kraakman and I wrote on The End of History for Corporate Law. Although that essay isn't highly representative of the work that Kraakman and I, either alone or together, have done in the area of corporate law, the topic is perhaps appropriate for the setting. For, while it's a casual piece, the essay at least tries to take a broad view of the subject. And Bob Clark is a master of the grand view, whether it's corporate tax, corporate law, or even more broadly-capitalism or the overall evolution of law.
