A Corporate Form to Reduce Information Costs and Maintain Supportive Resources

(p.336) Chapter 17 Local Corporations
Governing Access to Essential Resources

James Krueger

Columbia University Press

Krueger asserts that absolute scarcity poses a fundamental challenge to humankind. He agrees that Voice and Reflexivity depend on communities and develops a framework for creating communities with the capacity to govern in accordance with these normative principles. Specifically, he advocates a system of layered governance with local corporations that control essential resources occupying a role as intermediaries. These local corporations should retain some control over entry and exit; include multiple stakeholders that share collective responsibility for the entity; and employ governance regimes that promote good governance.

Keywords:   governance through intermediation, entry/exit, ecosystem services
