Toward an Economic Theory of Leadership: Leading by Example
This paper explores leadership within organizations. Leadership is distinct from authority because following a leader is a voluntary rather than coerced activity of the followers. This paper considers how a leader induces rational followers to follow her in situations when the leader has incentives to mislead her followers.
