    In a political structure with several power levels, how should regulatory authority in the area of corporate law be efficiently allocated between the different levels ? This question arises amidst a larger debate over the issue of the organization of governmental action when it takes place in a structure with several hierarchized governmental levels.

The paper focuses, in particular, on the consequences of the distribution of power for corporate governance.
