Transmission of cooperative firms

Abstract

We study the impact on investment decisions of a democratic decision-making process in a firm and of its transmission across generations of agents. Democratic decision-making can exist both with workers (in the labour-managed firm with one worker = one vote) and with shareholders (in joint-stock companies with one share = one vote). The decision is taken by a number of agents who may have differences of opinion. This heterogeneity is associated in the literature (e.g. Hansmann 1996) with inefficiency. Our research's aim is to study the deep mechanisms of the inefficiency and to show if and when it can be avoided.
