Product market competition

Introduction: There are two kinds of product market competition that are relevant in corporate governance. 1) Competition in the firm's product markets, and 2) competition in the product markets of the firm’s owners if they are firms as well. For instance the product markets of an institutional investor. Product market competition is of major importance in corporate governance because it affects the incentives of managers and thereby the economic efficiency of the companies they manage. A classic reference on product market competition is Hart [1983].
