Termination and Coordination in Partnerships

D. Minehart and Zvika Neeman ()

Working Papers from Boston University - Industry Studies Programme

Abstract: It is common practice for firms to pool their expertise by forming parterships such as joint ventures and strategic alliances. A Central organizational problem in such parterships is that managers may behave noncooperatively in order to advance the interests of their parent firms. We ask whether contracts can be designed so that managers will maximize total profits.
