The nature of the firm, agency theory and shareholder theory: A critique from philosophical anthropology [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal of Business Ethics 66 (1):33 - 42 (2006)
|Abstract||Standard accounts on the nature of the firm are highly dependent on explanations by Coase, coupled with inputs from agency theory and shareholder theory. This paper carries out their critique in light of personalist and common good postulates. It shows how personalist and common good principles create a framework that not only accommodates business ethics better but also affords a more compelling understanding of business as a whole.|
