If the executive has moved on (or retired) by the time the ‘further future’ arrives, that is somebody else’s problem. An even better way of ‘aligning incentives’, in principle, is the stock option. Give Firm X’s chief executive at time t the right to buy (say) a million of X’s shares, five years on, at the price at which they stand at time t: say $10. If X’s share price in the market has risen by time t + 5 to $30, then for each share there is an instant capital gain of $20, and the chief executive can be $20 million richer overnight.

For the nurturing and exploitation of industry-wide expertise one needs industry-wide interests: stakes in a number of firms in the same industry. A big bank might well have the resources needed for that, but if it builds such stakes questions will be asked about monopoly power, as they were in Germany in the 1970s.

The main limits to such autonomy will be in the raising of capital.

The main limits to such autonomy will be in the raising of capital. An issue of new share capital, or a share swap as part of an acquisition, may ‘dilute’ the insider’s holding(s) and jeopardise their control. Heavy borrowing will increase their risks. So when either possibility is on the table one would, so to say, expect the sleeping ‘insider’ to wake up. Whether newly awoken or awake all along, the need to raise capital is a serious challenge for the insider and the insiderdominated firm. The most engaged insider is likely to be one that has a large proportion of its assets tied up in the firm – typically, the founding family.
