Growth in Total
Return to Investors
- Michigan Supreme Court ruled, in Dodge vs. Ford Motor Co., in
favor of shareholder primacy, that "A business corporation is
organized and carried on primarily for the benefit of the
stockholders. The powers of the directors are to be employed for
that end." Henry Ford and company directors had decided
not to pay a dividend, despite substantial retained earnings,
substantial profits in the particular year, so that the money
could be spent on plant expansion, Ford industrial system could
be expanded for the general benefit of society. Court ruled that
reason was not directed at the profit of the company, not a
basis for refusing to pay a dividend.
