What inherent characteristic of corporations creates the need for a system of checks on manager behavior? (Select the best choice below.)

 

A. The best method of reducing conflicts of interest between shareholders and corporate managers is to allow the shareholders the ability to run the corporation themselves. It is more efficient and provides a drastic reduction in conflicts of interest.

 

B. Corporate managers are by nature greedy and cannot be trusted in any way. Therefore, a system of checks, created

 

by the Board of Directors, is normally instituted to control managerial behavior.

 

C. The corporation allows for the separation of management and ownership. Thus, those who control the operations of the corporation and how its money is spent are not the same who have invested in the corporation. This creates a clear conflict of interest and this conflict between the investors and managers creates the need for investors to devise a system of checks on managers­the system of corporate governance.

 

D. There really is no need to have a system of corporate governance. If shareholders are not satisfied with the management of a company they can simply sell their shares in that company.

C. One advantage of the corporate organizational structure is that shareholder and management interests are closely aligned thus insuring that management acts in the best interest of the shareholders.

 

D. One disadvantage of the corporate organizational form is that it restricts the number of investors that share in the risk of the corporation, thus requiring firms to seek their capital from banks.
