Product details

Product Description


'Over the years, this classic reader has been a terrific source for those seeking to understand the nature of the firm. The updated material in the new edition will extend this distinguished record.' Bengt Holmstrom, MIT

'For decades, economists focused on the miracle of the market to explain the productive performance of advanced economies. But both the miracles and the problems of modern economies are mostly rooted inside the firms that the system cultivates. The previous editions of the Kroszner-Putterman reader served my students well by exposing them to the deepest economic thinking about the role of the firm. This new edition has some great additions that keep this reader right up to date.' Paul Milgrom, Stanford University

Book Description

This is a book of classic and near-classic readings on issues in the theory of how firms are organized, written by economists well known in the field. The collection introduces the core literature to advanced undergraduates, graduates and scholars in allied disciplines, including law, sociology, and organization and management.
