Investing in L³C Organizations: Indicators of Legitimacy

G. G. De Blasio, E. K. Woeste

Organizations are cautioned to avoid favoring one stakeholder group over others when establishing policy and engaging in public discourse. Corporations are often criticized for privileging investors or shareholders. Non-profits, however, typically main-tain strong connections to community stakeholders and operate with visible educa-tional, heath care, or other institutional affiliation. With the recent and ongoing creation of a new legal entity, the low-profit, limited liability L³C company, organization-stakeholder relations will need to be reconceptualized. The L³C is charged with a primary purpose of practicing charity and social good, and yet is permitted to generate low profit and to court investors. The L³C investors expect a financial return much in the same way an investment in a large for-profit organization would be expected to grow. How, then, does the L³C organization fulfill its obligation to do charitable work and meet the institutional demands of social transformation while pursuing profit and answering to investors? In other words, how does L³C remain legitimate? The L³C places a new form of strain on stakeholder relations. An examination of a social circus organization in its formative stages helps to answer how stakeholder relations are re-considered for the hybrid L³C low-profit entity. The concepts of civic engagement and institutional affiliation were found to be factors in the legitimation process.

Keywords: legitimacy, L³C, social circus, stakeholder theory, community, institutionalization


Entrepreneurship, Bureaucracy and Administrative Procedures: Anti-Commons Tragedy in the Portuguese Aquaculture Sector

J. A. Filipe, M. A. M. Ferreira, M. Coelho

Anti-commons is seen as a property regime in which multiple owners hold ef-fective rights of exclusion in a scarce resource. The coexistence of multiple exclusion rights creates conditions for suboptimal use of the common resource. The anti-commons construction offers an analytical tool for isolating a central feature of some-times disparate institutional structures. Accordingly, inefficiencies introduced by overlapping and intrusive regulatory bureaucracies may be studied with the help of this conceptualization. When an entrepreneur seeks to invest in a project and his action is inhibited by the necessity of getting permits from several national and regional agen-cies, each one holding exclusion rights to the project, a tragedy of the anti-commons may happen. Consequently, a lot of problems in the development of local initiatives of entrepreneurship emerge, affecting the potential of innovation and affecting the re-gional development. There are only a few empirical studies on anti-commons tragedies in the real world, most of them focusing on pharmaceutics industry. The main purpose of this paper is to use this conceptualization to study the design and execution of aqua-culture policy in Portugal and to introduce the possible emergence of an anti-commons tragedy when we approach the difficult process of approval and execution of projects of aquaculture in the Portuguese coastal areas. Our results are consistent with the suggestion of Buchanan and Yoon (2000).

Keywords: anti-commons, bureaucracy, coastal development, aquaculture
