Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Economics - Macro-economics, general, grade: 1,0, University of Heidelberg (Alfred-Weber-Institut), language: English, abstract: In recent decades, rapidly progressing economic integration has increasingly challenged
the traditional distinction between sovereign nation states as monopolistic
suppliers of public goods on the one hand and an international sphere on the other
hand. The aim of economic policy on the national level was to promote the
population's welfare, whereas on the international level economists stressed the
positive effects of cross-border division of labour through international trade.
However, as a consequence of economic integration individuals and businesses
are subject to legislation and regulation from a multitude of governmental bodies
and layers while the sovereign powers of nation state shrunk because individuals
and business became more and more mobile. The strict separation between the
national and the international level therefore "no longer seems to grasp the recent
economic, social, and legal developments in a globalised world" and "multi-level
governance [has] been suggested as an alternative approach".
Multi-level governance is especially important in the European Union where
economic integration increased the mobility of persons, firms, and capital enormously
while regulatory competences were only partially harmonized. In the field
of company law, harmonization has not been successful so far - neither by creating
a single substantive body of law nor by harmonization of conflict-of-law rules. Therefore, companies were bound to their national company law for a long
time. However, several decisions by the ECJ between 1999 and 2003 changed this
situation and companies in the EU now have the possibility to use the corporate
statutes of other Member States and for the first time regulatory competition on
corporate charters seems to be possible.
Regulatory competition on corporate charters has been an issue in the US for
almost 100 years. Firms have long been able to freely choose the corporate statute
of any state. On the other hand, states have incentives to provide an attractive
company law because they can charge an incorporation fee known as franchise
tax on companies registered in their state. On the contrary, EU Member States are
not allowed to charge a fee based on incorporation and corporate mobility was
until recently limited.[...]
