Example text

29 As with Alchian and Demsetz, the solution to this problem is supposed to reside in the recourse to a third party. This leads to the idea that it is all the members of the team – including the shareholders and employees – who decide, by common assent, to confer the control rights over the firm’s production and the use of inputs to an ‘‘outsider,’’ namely the hierarchy. In this, the authors explicitly express a ‘‘Hobbesian’’ conception of the firm which, as Bowles (1985) observed, lies at the heart of contractual approaches.

The most coherent way to describe the situation would be to say that we are in a principal–agent relationship, but with several principals. This leads us to consider the firm essentially as a coalition, which is, to a degree, the viewpoint expressed in managerial theories, or in the ‘‘stakeholder’’ conception of corporate governance. And this echoes certain aspects of Berle’s and Means’s viewpoint. In the vision of the firm as a nexus of contracts, it is hard to see what can justify, a priori, the special status granted to shareholders, unless the reasoning is based on something other than ownership.

In the vision of the firm as a nexus of contracts, it is hard to see what can justify, a priori, the special status granted to shareholders, unless the reasoning is based on something other than ownership. The most common argument is based on the question of risk-sharing: the shareholders are paid on the basis of ’’residual income’’ (they are ’’residual claimants’’), and are hence expected to bear the risks. This interpretation is extremely fragile: it needs to be supported by rigorous analysis of the character and operating conditions of the different 36 Olivier Weinstein markets for ‘‘factors of production,’’ the conditions governing the sharing out of the surplus created by the firm’s activity and the modes of payment of the different parties involved, in other words the exact design of the different contracts.
