    Enlightened Corporate Governance: Specific Investments by Employees as Legitimation for Residual Claims.Alexander Brink - 2010 - Journal of Business Ethics 93 (4):641-651.
    While much has been written on specificity (e.g., in texts on new institutional economics, agency theory, and team production theory), there are still some insights to be learnt by business ethicists. This article approaches the issue from the perspective of team production, and will propose a new form of corporate governance: enlightened corporate governance, which takes into consideration the specific investments of employees. The article argues that, in addition to shareholders, employees also bear a residual risk which arises due to (...)

    How Can We Act Morally in a Merger Process? A Stimulation Based on Implicit Contracts.Olaf Karitzki & Alexander Brink - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 43 (1-2):137 - 152.
    The intention of the article is to offer stakeholders affected by mergers a criterion from which moral arguments may be generated for the organization of each individual case. The criterion: "Any operation causing legitimate interests to suffer vital infringement should be avoided in a merger process." A vital infringement of these interests is assumed when the merger undermines unique positive opportunities or considerable impairment in the future, impossible to overcome for the person affected without an unacceptable level of difficulty. Therefore, (...)

    The Agency Problem and Medical Acting: An Example of Applying Economic Theory to Medical Ethics. [REVIEW]Andreas Langer, Peter Schröder-Bäck, Alexander Brink & Johannes Eurich - 2009 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 12 (1):99-108.
    In this article, the authors attempt to build a bridge between economic theory and medical ethics to offer a new perspective to tackle ethical challenges in the physician–patient encounter. They apply elements of new institutional economics to the ethically relevant dimensions of the physician–patient relationship in a descriptive heuristic sense. The principal–agent theory can be used to analytically grasp existing action problems in the physician–patient relationship and as a basis for shaping recommendations at the institutional level. Furthermore, the patients’ increased (...)

    Recognition Based Upon the Vitality Criterion: A Key to Sustainable Economic Success.Alexander Brink & Johannes Eurich - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics 67 (2):155-164.
    Recognition is a basic precondition of participation. This article applies the dimension of recognition to business ethics. A case is made for normative stakeholder management as a voluntary commitment at the level of corporate leadership; this also meets management’s strategic demands. A vitality criterion is offered as a heuristic instrument, suggesting that any operation should be avoided which would violate the legitimate interests of stakeholders. For this reason, the recognition of mutually-conditioned stakeholder claims is understood as the central management idea.

    Ethische Implikationen der Ökonomisierung in der Medizin: Das Arzt-Patient-Verhältnis aus Sicht der doppelten Prinzipal-Agent-Theorie.Peter Sehröder, Andreas Langer, Alexander Brink & Johannes Eurich - 2003 - Zeitschrift Für Evangelische Ethik 47 (1):21-32.
    The health care sector is currently in a process of economization which, undoubtedly, has an impact on the relationship of physician and patient. In this article, elements of the new institutional economics are applied to the physician-patient-relationship in the sense of a descriptive heuristics. The authors find out that based on the principal-agent-theory paradoxical action settings ofthe physician can be located. 1t is necessary for policy makers involved in health care to consider these paradoxes. Furthermore, health literacy of lay persans (...)

    Hirschman’s Rhetoric of Reaction: U.S. And German Insights in Business Ethics.Alexander Brink - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (1):109-122.
    In recent times, representatives of American management science have been arguing increasingly for a functionalization of ethics to change economic thinking: what they are seeking is the systematic integration of ethics into the economic paradigm. Using the insights developed by Hirschman, I would like to show how one must first expose the rhetoric of those critics of change in order then to implement that which is new. Such an 'unmasking' works particularly well when one can defuse the arguments of the (...)
