Business Ownership and Organisation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Understanding the relationship between the different ways in which business is owned and organised, and the effects these choices have on the performance of firms and economies, is widely debated in economics, management, finance, law, business and economic history. Optimising the form of ownership and organisation can increase the scale and scope of operations, whilst improving productivity, efficiency, and the capacity for innovation. The role of the Corporation, or the Joint-Stock company, has been central to these debates.
