Agreeing now to agree later : contracts that rule out but do not rule in by Oliver D Hart( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We view a contract as a list of outcomes. Ex ante, the parties commit not to consider outcomes not on the list, i.e., these are 'ruled out'. Ex post, they freely bargain over outcomes on the list, i.e., the contract specifies no mechanism to structure their choice; in this sense outcomes on the list are not 'ruled in'. A 'loose' contract (long list) maximizes flexibility but may interfere with ex ante investment incentives. When these incentives are important enough, the parties may write a 'tight' contract (short list), even though this leads to ex post inefficiency
Contracts as reference points by Oliver D Hart( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We argue that a contract provides a reference point for a trading relationship: more precisely, for parties' feelings of entitlement. A party's ex post performance depends on whether he gets what he is entitled to relative to outcomes permitted by the contract. A party who is shortchanged shades on performance. A flexible contract allows parties to adjust their outcome to uncertainty, but causes inefficient shading. Our analysis provides a basis for long-term contracts in the absence of noncontractible investments, and elucidates why "employment" contracts, which fix wage in advance and allow the employer to choose the task, can be optimal
