Discussed at V&R Chapter 3 are the basic principles of Catholic Social Thought (CST), including the moral principle of subsidiarity.
Don Quijote is a Japanese retail chain whose business plan is built on each shop having subsidiarity (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-17/the-cult-japanese-retailer-making-billions-breaking-all-the-rules). All hiring and management is local to ensure that the shops act like barometers to tastes and demand in their areas. “In the past year, Don Quijote has closed branch offices and cut the number of regional-level managers to ensure store staff answer to fewer people and make decisions themselves.”
Not just efficient, but just.
