"In this paper, we are the first to introduce the role of parameter uncertainty into the principal agent literature. We find that uncertainty has qualitatively different implications than risk in studying executive incentives. That is, we find that in contrast to the standard negative risk-incentive trade-off in the standard principal agent literature, our model generates a positive relation between profitability uncertainty and incentives. We also provide empirical support for our theoretical prediction."
