Sample text

As ␴2 is lower, the incentive pay regime is more likely to occur. If ␴2 is low enough to be located in region I, independent contractors are used. 5. Noncontractible Investment We take one further generalization to allow the parties to make noncontractible investment in assets (human or nonhuman). We assume that investments must be made ex-ante, that is, prior to (but in anticipation of) the choices of compensation regime, b1 or wN , effort, and r. 23 Let hw and hf be the worker’s and the firm’s investment in noncontractible assets, respectively.

If the firm has control over the work routine, terms in the first-order conditions switch. Firm investment induces a greater r and directly affects productivity, so the firm has more incentive to invest. Assume that the magnitude of ∂2 ␤/∂r∂hj and that of ∂␤/∂hj move together. If they rise, the effects on investment reinforce one another. The former causes a larger increase in r with a given increase in h and the latter generates a larger direct effect. Thus, control of the work routine will be given to the party for which these are largest, ceteris paribus.

To see this more clearly, consider Fig. 2. The right-hand part of Fig. 2 is a reproduction of Fig. 1 showing how expected profits vary with ␴2 in the incentive pay regime. The left-hand portion shows how profits vary with 1 − p in the forcing contract regime. Which regime occurs depends on the values of ␴2 and 1 − p. For 1 − p = B and σ 2 = A , profits are higher with forcing contracts. If 1 − p rises to C, expected profits are higher in the incentive pay regime with worker control. Independent contractors are used.
