Implications of Agency Theory for Optimal Land Tenure Contracts* Wallace E. Huffman Iowa State University Richard E. Just University of Maryland For more than 2 centuries, economists have been interested in agricultural con-tracts, especially landowner-tenant contracts.

Within contract theory, this article fits most closely alongside the applied multitask literature concerned with an agent assigned to a financial and an environmental task (Sinclair-Desgagné, B.
To be certain, economists have long studied multitask incentive problems. Indeed, the crowding-out and complementarity effects studied in the new literature are a central focus of the theory of optimal taxation, the Ramsey–Boiteux theory of regulated firms, and the cannibalization and reinforcement theories of pricing in unregulated by: Multitask principal–agent problems: Optimal contracts, P.

At the optimal contract the local and extremal incentive constraints both bind: the agent is indifferent between the local maximum and the corner solution of shirking on all tasks (see the solid line in Fig.
Finally, at the optimal contract the agent’s effort differs from the social optimum in two by: Recent Work: The Rise of Agency Theory. Modern scholarship has produced more precise insights about when delegation benefits those who delegate.
Many scholars now adopt the language of principal–agent models (i.e., agency theory) to describe the logic of delegation. The principal in principal–agent theories represents someone who delegates.
Hence, women will be less attached to market work and firms ’ expectations are confirmed. If firms instead believe that labor market attachment is the same across genders, they will offer the same labor contracts to male and female workers.
Then, the efficient intra-household allocation of labor will not be related to gender. The Economics of Contracts provides a guided tour to the leading ideas in contract theory. It assembles some of the foundational writings on contracting under limited and asymmetric information, incentives and mechanism design.
It contains, in particular, the key contributions of five recent Nobel Prize winners in economics and brings together the most important articles that have followed.

Introduction In the standard economic treatment of the principal-agent problem, compen- sation systems serve the dual function of allocating risks and rewarding pro- ductive work. This chapter studies the problem of multiple agent conflicts.
It states that majority of ownership is taken from institutional investors who are also agents to ultimate principals. It studies the dual identities of these institutional investors—who are also called “agent-owners”—and introduces the multiple agency theory. It then expands this theory though an analysis of the potential.
Downloadable (with restrictions). We analyze a tractable class of multitask principal-agent problems, such as the one faced by a firm with a manager overseeing several projects.
We allow for tasks to be complements or substitutes. We avoid the problems associated with the first-order approach by directly characterizing the shape of the agent's indirect utility function, which exhibits a convex. Agency theory can be used to determine the optimal exercise price of options when they are granted.
The optimal price is a function of numerous factors and not the same for different firms. In practice most options are granted at the money (i.e., with an exercise price equal to the company’s stock price on the day), a clear contradiction of.
The principal–agent problem, in political science and economics (also known as agency dilemma or the agency problem) occurs when one person or entity (the "agent"), is able to make decisions and/or take actions on behalf of, or that impact, another person or entity: the "principal".
This dilemma exists in circumstances where agents are motivated to act in their own best interests, which are.
An important extension of classic agency theory is the multi-task agency model (Holmstrom and Milgrom, ) where the agent has to perform separate and distinct actions in order to fulfill.

accounting, where the software and network infrastructure are less complementary. Using a multitask agency framework, we characterize the optimal contract between ASPs and end user organizations focusing on the best incentives in the contract desig n and develop a theoretical model that will be analyzed empirically using data on ASP contracts.
The paper introduces the problem of unawareness into multi-dimensional Principal–Agent theory. We introduce two key parameters to describe the problem, the extent and the effect of unawareness, show under what conditions it is optimal for the Principal to propose an incomplete or a complete contract, and characterize the incentive power of optimal linear contracts.

To this end, this paper develops a theory of multitasking behavior and identifies the causes, consequences, and patterns that characterize it.

Lesourne and H. Sonnenschein.“incomplete markets” models, we could have “incomplete contracts” mod-els, in which not all contingent contracts can be written.
Such incomplete contracts should ideally be explained as optimal when the parties are bound-edly rational, e.g. cannot foresee future states of the world, or cannot write complex contracts.Thus we find casual reference to landowners and tenant farmers in economic theory (e.g., Sappington ) and, indeed, the modern theory of contracts developed in this context.
There is also a seemingly disproportionate amount of attention paid to agricultural contracts .
