Contents:

Author Info

  • Hinks, T.

Abstract

The 'Shirking model' of Shapiro and Stiglitz (1984) allows the possibility of partial shirking, where effort varies between zero and one because of asymmetric information favouring workers. This paper argues that within this framework it is possible to introduce a racist element into workers' utility functions.
