The workers therefore have an incentive to shirk, to free-ride on other team members' efforts. The weIl known reason is that the cost of shirking is born by the entire team. The result is that since market contracting with individuals is not possible, the free-riding problem is overcome by the "classic firm" structure in which workers are paid a wage and a principal supervises or monitors the workers. It is then optimal to let the principal be the residual claimant. By this arrangement, the incentive compatibility of the residual claimant is satisfied and team members' freeriding is attenuated as the monitor is given the authority to dismiss any slackers.
