Effiziente Fixlöhne, Arbeitsfreude und Überwachungskosten

  • Neunzig, Alexander R.
Registered author(s):

    Für die Prinzipal-Agenten-Theorie ist es ein weitgehend ungelöstes Rätsel, warum reale Arbeitsverträge sehr geringe monetäre Leistungsanreize spezifizieren. In dieser Arbeit wird auf der Grundlage des Prinzipal-Agenten-Ansatzes ein Modell entwickelt, dass sowohl Fixlohnverträge als auch Anreizverträge erklären kann, die eine geringe Leistungsabhängigkeit beinhalten. Hierzu wird einerseits angenommen, dass Arbeitnehmer nicht nur Arbeitsleid, sondern auch Arbeitsfreude empfinden. Andererseits wird angenommen, dass die Überwachung der Leistung von Arbeitnehmern nicht kostenlos erfolgen kann.
