In chapter 5 Froeb discussed post-investment holdup as sunk cost problem associated with contract specific fixed investments. The modern theory of contracts is sometimes called the theory of joining wills which simply means, when parties make an agreement they are joining together to complete an endeavor of mutual interest. The problem with all contracts that endure over time is that not all potential challenges can be anticipated. The idea of joining wills is that parties will attempt to seek accommodations to advance their mutual interest, so long as the return on the invested activity pays off. Froeb illustrates the idea by the example of marriage as a contract.

Your company has informed all of its customers that increased cost must be passed on for your firm to continue suppling the seats. All of your customers reluctantly agreed to pay the additional cost.
