More plausibly, it also depends on nonpecuniary gains, such as economic gains not included in the compensation discussed in the previous section, as well as on psycho­ logical satisfaction.

4 verify this conjecture. In the United States in 1 974, among the firms with sales of more than a half million dollars, 82 percent were corporations whose sales together accounted for more than 95 percent of the sales of all such firms. Likewise, in Japan in 1 97 5 , almost 99 percent of the firms (excluding proprietorships) with employees of a thousand or more were corporations.
