Relationship Agent-Principal Notes 8-23-12 An agency relationship is a relationship where one or more persons (the principal(s)) engage another person (the agent) to perform some service on their behalf o Involves delegating some decision making authority to the agent Someone (the principal) hires the agent to make decisions or suggest a course of action o Acts in his or her BEST INTEREST. If both parties to the relationship are utility maximizers, there is good reason to believe that the agent will not always act in the best interests of the principal. o Risk-takers The agent may have an incentive to not acting in the best interest of principal o maximize the the principal's utility Agent may act in his or her own best interest o maximize his or her own utility. The agent can do this without the principal knowing because of information asymmetry o o the agent knows something that the principal does not the agent has access to information that the principal does not have o the agent is able to do so without the principal knowing. Example: Car Purchaser= principal Car Salesman= agent The car salesman works for a commission and would like for you to purchase the highest priced car as possible so they will try to add as many additional prices for features as possible.
