Summary
Economic models are not neutral reflections of reality; they always convey a certain view of the issues under investigation as well. Matthias Meyer deals with this aspect of economic theory formation in an analysis of the works of Max Weber and F.A. von Hayek. The author develops an alternative theoretical concept of the principal-agent theory, in which the principal and the agent are confronted with a reciprocal problem.
