Abstract

This paper presents the results of an analysis of the individuals who held the largest number of board positions in Italian joint-stock companies and commonly referred to as big linkers, which are assumed as a proxy of the country's business elite. In capitalist countries, big linkers perform an extremely important function in ensuring the cohesion of the economic system, for they are usually the business community's opinion leaders, the vehicle through which information is collected and spread, as well as the principle channel connecting the business world and the political domain.
