Did Larry Ribstein upend the "nexus of contracts" theory in corporate law?

Grant M. Hayden & Matthew T. Bodie have posted “Larry from the Left: An Appreciation” on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This essay approaches the scholarship of the late Professor Larry Ribstein from a progressive vantage point. It argues that Ribstein's revolutionary work upended the "nexus of contracts" theory in corporate law and provided a potential alternative to the regulatory state for those who believe in worker empowerment and anti-cronyism. Progressive corporate law scholars should look to Ribstein's scholarship not as a hurdle to overcome, but as a resource to be tapped for insights about constructing a more egalitarian and dynamic economy.
