Now, sure, this may take place because of mistaken state policies, and it may be prevented by the good sense of regulators. But above all the key is the wishes of managers and shareholders in the firms that may merge – which takes us back to finance and corporate governance. Likewise, rivalry can be generated or regenerated by the setting up of new businesses, which draws on another part of the finance and corporate governance system. Another approach to inter-firm interaction which is deservedly fashionable is via ‘clusters’ or ‘industrial districts’.

Organic growth may also be pursued beyond this point. Marris (1964) constructed a persuasive theory of ‘managerial capitalism’ based on the idea of growth maximisation subject to a profit constraint: that is, profit would be sacrificed to growth but only down to a certain level. The ‘floor’ of minimum profit might be set at what the shareholders would tolerate or it might be determined by what was required to finance the growth strategy. Strong shareholder dissatisfaction will at the very least lead to a low share price which will make it impossibly expensive to raise new capital in the stock market or to pay for an acquisition with the firm’s own shares.

Why not concentrate on having a good time, if you will be paid the same regardless of effort and economy? excessively risk-averse, normally, because if they take a risk and the worst happens, the result is dismissal, whereas if the outcome is good there is no gain compared to the cautious option. The exception arises where for some reason there is a very bad situation and they can expect even the cautious option to lead to dismissal. Then one may as well play for high stakes – ‘double or quits’: if the risk comes off the job is saved, if it does not, the outcome will be worse for the shareholders but not for the manager.
