In this paper we analyze the choice of how a firm organizes itself with regard to the degree of centralization of production decisions, as a way of deterring entry by the manager of the firm. We show that if the fixed cost of setting up a new firm is low enough, the owner of the firm chooses a centralized organizational form.
