3. Principal-Agent Theory Principal-agent theory begins with the observation that the textbook neoclassical assumption of perfect and complete information does not characterize the real world. Rather, information is asymmetric, and markets for information exchange do not always exist. Consequently, contracts are often written under the constraint of information asymmetry, and may not mimic the full-information neoclassical contracts. For example, suppose there exist two people, a gentleman farmer and a day laborer.
The same applies to the class issue, which does not exist for institutionalists or neoclassicists, but which is at the core of the marxist analysis. 5. Current Problems and the Current Extent of Bureaucracy Bureaucracy may have existed for millennia, but some things have been happening to force attention on it as a current phenomenon. Some issues-from the rise of managers in corporations who sometimes, at least, seem quite independent of stockholders/owners, to the evident dominance of other managers in the former Soviet block - call into question the dividing lines set by all definitions of bureaucrats and bureaucracy.
