This paper explores alternative configurations of right sharing in economic organization in terms of the types of right shared (decision, reward, asset ownership) and the mode of sharing (via contracts or not). First, it is argued that what contracts can do in terms of right sharing is generally under-appraised, partly due to a narrow notion of contract prevailing in economics and in the Common Law contexts in which it has been elaborated. That notion is criticized, and a revised and extended typology of possible contracts proposed, infusing insights and juridical foundations from Civil Law and European traditions – in particular the possibility of right sharing (including property rights) and constitutional contracts establishing various forms of ‘societas’. Next, the different types of contracts are connected to the sharing of decision rights allowed by different organizational architectures. As a result, a typology of right sharing configurations is developed, and filled with examples of arrangements that recent empirical research reports as actually adopted in economic organization. The various forms of right sharing are not just described as possible or as prescribed by law, but reconstructed and comparatively assessed as efficient, effective and equitable modes of governing cooperation and exchange under increasing levels of uncertainty, knowledge distribution and interdependence.
