ABSTRACT
This study develops and tests implications of an agency perspective on the structure of top executive compensation, ownership, and corporate control. We propose that firms seek to ensure optimal managerial behavior by efficiently balancing incentive, monitoring, and risk-bearing arrangements. The study examine these issues empirically for 435 newly-formed corporations.
