4.0 out of 5 stars How do people cooperate to defend common interest, 15 Oct. 2001
This review is from: The Logic of Collective Action: Public Goods and the Theory of Groups (Economic Studies) (Harvard Economic Studies) (Paperback)
This book, published for the first time in 1966, has begun a founding theory of organization.
Why people do cooperate? Is a common interest enough to unite people for an efficient action?
Olson explains, amongs many brilliant analysis and relevant examples, that a lot of people don't defend their interest because they know that, anyway, someone will do this work. This is a weakness of those collective actions. Olson then shows how organisations deal with this conservatism.
M.Olson's writings are read by the majority of today's economists and sociologists.
