The labor market and corporate structure
AbstractWe analyze the impact of labor demand and labor market regulations on the corporate structure of firms. We find that higher wages are associated with lower monitoring, irrespective of whether these high wages are caused by labor market regulatio ns, unions or higher labor demand. These comparative static results are in line with the broad trends in the data.
