Journal of Business Ethics 3 (2):139 - 142 (1984)
|Abstract||Corporations have not sufficiently yielded to social pressures for humanitarian reforms. To make such reforms requires that management give up some control. Giving up control contradicts traditional managerial philosophy. The bureaucratic structure of corporations gives management the power to virtually eliminate most social influences. An alternative to the bureaucratic corporation is a shared ownership corporation where investors, management, and low ranking employees all own the corporation. This alternative balances the power by giving all participants in the corporation power to influence policy. Without this redistribution of power, or something like it, any hope for significant humanitarian reforms is vain.|
