Question

Think back to the last time you ate at an expensive restaurant
where you paid thebill. Now think about the last time you ate at a
similar restaurant, but your parentspaid the bill. Did you order
more food (or more expensive food) when your parentspaid? Explain
how this relates to the agency problem in corporations.

Answer #1

The agency problem leads an individual (in your case) and
corporate managers (in the corporate setting) to put their own
self-interest ahead of the interests of the shareholders (your
parents in your case).

In both situations there may be a lack of interest in controlling
costs if those costs are not borne directly by the person making
the decision.

When you would be payina bill you will order less food and when your parents paying the bill you may order more food because parents are paying for that. Same way in organisation the manager just take decisions all the costs are ultimately borne by Share-holders manager may spend more(like we order more food when we are not paying).

OK, one last time for our railroad story. Looking back at
problem 2 where in 2015 you bought a 20 year W&WR bond for

the interest rates (coupon) for similar bonds stayed at 7% (did not
go up to 9%) – and yes, of course I need to see all work.

together productive or unproductive? Why do you think this was so?
Were you the leader of the group? If not, could you tell who the
group leader was? How? Did the direction the group took in terms of
completing the task...

Think of the last important decision you made about how to
