Resource description

At the core of the present global crisis lies an ideological oversight that indicates standardbusiness models are subject to fail due to moral hazard: managerial prerogative, particularly theU.S. variant, is not self-regulating in respect to either corporate risk or the stewardship ofstakeholder trust. We know there is variance in national political economies, but less is knownabout legal factors informing firm-specific variance, especially as these regards trust andtransparency. This paper reports research seeking to bridge this ‘gap’ by the introduction ofcomparative legal ecology employment models of the enterprise. The construct is derived fromreflection upon industrial relations research into the existence and nature of Japan’s ‘lifetimeemployment system’. Construct parameters include employment security, labor unions and thedegree of employee participation permitted (if any); model schematics are offered for the UnitedStates of America, Germany, Japan, Denmark, and the People’s Republic of China. Thecomparative models help to account for variance in the legal extent and nature of managerialprerogative, job security, and the degree of information, power, and resource transparency of anyenterprise. These offer, in consequence, clear and clearly comparative benchmarks of industrialdemocracy.
