One way of dealing with shareholder-manager agency conflicts is that managers are compensated on the basis of changes of the value of the business. Since managers have great incentives to maximize shareholder wealth, the agency costs are low in this case. The other method of dealing with the problem is shareholders monitoring every managerial action. This method is extremely costly and inefficient. The most favourable solution lies between these two extremes where managers compensation is coupled with the performance while monitoring their actions. Large companies employ performance shares schemes where shares of the company are offered to managers on the basis of financial performance such as earnings per share, return on assets, return on equity, and share price. These compensation schemes are designed to ensure managers take actions that will enhance shareholder wealth and to facilitate companies attract and retain the best managers.… Read More

If a business isn’t thrifty, it will burn money at a higher rate and is at greater risk of going into debt for expenditures without any return on the investment.… Read More
The life cycle of a business consists of four phases”. Each phase has its own special features and challenges. All successful businesses will go through these phases more than once. I was expecting just that going to grad school (I studied a lab science as a UG and didn’t know a single econ major), but I found the other students to be plenty collaborative. We did weekly study groups, emailed each other our homeworks to compare and discuss answers, and generally commiserated and supported one another. A few people went to great lengths to help others, which was good for me at first because I went there knowing little math.… Read More
