Bad management theories are, at present, destroying good management practices’ (Ghoshal, 2005: 86). Writing in the aftermath of the spate of corporate scandals just when the dot-com boom went bust, Ghoshal unequivocally declared that ‘many of the worst excesses of recent management practices have their roots in a set of ideas that have emerged from business school academics in the last 30 years’ (Ghoshal, 2005: 75). Ghoshal includes in this bag of pernicious ideas Jensen and Meckling’s agency theory in ﬁrst place: ‘we have taught our students that managers cannot be trusted to do their jobs – which, of course, is to maximize shareholder value – and that to overcome “agency problems”, managers’ interests and incentives must be aligned with those of the shareholders by, for example, making stock options a signiﬁcant part of their pay’ (Ghoshal, 2005: 75).
Apparently, the law has not been as eﬀective as everyone had hoped, and there is no lack of explanations for this. Beyond criticisms of the law itself, however, it has been unusual to ﬁnd comments directed against the corporate governance model on which the law was based. A closer scrutiny reveals that, once more, we are before a model of corporate governance premised on shareholder theory, agency theory and transaction cost theory of the ﬁrm. As Deakin and Konzelmann have lucidly remarked, ‘The true lesson of Enron is that until the power of the shareholder value norm is broken, eﬀective reform of corporate governance will be on hold’ (Deakin and Konzelmann, 2004: 141).
Given such a toxic combination of assumptions and theories, and given such unsavoury results, why do we put up with them? ‘The answer – the only answer that is really valid – is that this assumption helps in structuring and solving nice mathematical models. [. ] the elegant mathematics of principal–agent models can be applied to the enormously complex economic, social, and moral issues related to the governance of giant public corporations that have such enormous inﬂuence on the lives of thousands – often millions – of people’, Ghoshal retorts (2005: 80).
