Sample text

Institutionalists argue that modern market economies all over the world are mixed economies consisting of a public sector (with SOEs) and a private sector (with some state shares). Both sectors are more or less in an equilibrium of complementarities. For example, investment into the public infrastructure promises better profitability for many private investors. The stabilisation of wage costs, aggregate demand, and financial sector stability are other examples of external economies that an active government can provide to the private sector.

Excess demand can be eliminated by abolishing the price controls and by curbing nominal income. In the first case, P would adjust upwards and balance supply and demand (‘corrective inflation’). The elimination of all sources of excess demand in the current year would stabilize the free price at the given level (‘stabilization’). An increase of Y in subsequent years, however, would again generate excess demand and, with free prices, turn into inflation. The problem with this model is aggregation.

Property rights include also the right to contract and to control the contract (Kregel Matzner, and Drabher 1992) Lacking law enforcement and control rights, private ownership would always be threatened by private expropriatation (see Djankov et al. 2003) through the non-fulfilment of contractual obligations, or even robbery. 2 Corporate governance Corporate governance is the system by which business corporations are directed and controlled. The corporate governance structure specifies the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation, such as the board, managers, shareholders and other stakeholders, and spells out the rules and procedures for making decisions on corporate affairs.
