Contracts are vital to the function of any economy, and any business relationship. You may have heard the saying, “In Hollywood, no one is taken advantage of; they just signed a bad contract.” We’d hope things were different, but it’s often not so. We talk about the “four corners” of the contract, because if something is not made explicit in the contract in terms of obligation, it’s legally unenforceable. Implication, or a verbal agreement of some type isn’t going to be legally binding.
In another respect, contracts serve an important function in a market economy. Enforcing contracts is a key piece of what ethicists call, “commutative justice,” that is, the expectation that a party to a contract will be treated similarly, even identically, to a party in the same situation. That’s another way of saying that parties to a contract value stability and predictability. A contract gives each party exactly that, if it’s well-designed. Business owners and executives also value that same stability and predictability broadly speaking, as they seek to grow their businesses.
