ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effects of company mergers and takeovers on corporate management. Company managements generally oppose, criticize, and attack unfriendly takeover attempts, considering them as unfair, predatory, and adverse to the shareholders and the economy in the long-run. But, although takeovers are unwelcome for company managements, they serve a very useful purpose. The takeover threat motivates management to do a better job and contributes to the macroeconomic well-being of the economic system.
