The order of priority of claims in liquidation is firmly established in legal precedent. As depicted in Table 18.9 of the textbook, common shareholders are last in priority. Yet, in bankruptcy negotiations, creditors (who have a relatively high priority) often give up their debt in exchange for shares of common stock, whose claim on liquidation proceeds are last on the list. Why might they do this? Do you believe it is a good idea? Explain.
