Example text

Since managers can not be effectively monitored, and since keeping their judgement about subordinates honest is important to the firm, managers are paid according to efficiency wage principles, that is they are paid premium wages which induce honesty and hard work. Since the firm does not wish to lose money on these workers it sets a premium wage for managers which minimizes the unit cost of getting effort from this pool of promoted workers. And then, based on this wage and the expected productivity of managers in the second period, it promotes the optimal number of most highly ranked workers from its firstperiod internal labour supply pool.

But economics played a role as well. For it must be kept in mind that the actual working of the system was constrained by more than demographic probabilities. The family was both a demographic unit and, in the case of the peasant and/or craft/merchant households, a unit of economic production was well. If it seemed to the household head that the biologically produced putative heir could not shoulder the task of managing the household economy in a competitive economy in which households vied with each other for land, rank and other assets, the family head might well be inclined to pass over that individual in favour of a more competent person unrelated by blood ties.

But how actual adjustments were arrived at very much depended on the class status of the family. Here I contrast two stylized types: the peasant type and the samurai warrior/bureaucrat type. Adaptation to demographic constraints differed between the representative family in these two classes. The reasons were both economic and ideological: economic because the ways a family generated its income and type of labour market in operated in were fundamentally different in the two social spheres; and ideological because the code of behaviour which in principle applied to the representative samurai was at variance with the code of behaviour followed by the typical peasant.
