Williamson's EIOC is not the easiest read, but the insights it offers are real gems. The book explores the spectrum of contract space from deep liquid commodity markets, through a range of intermediate structures through to vertical itegration by common ownership. Read in conjunction with other "standard" MBA texts on micro-economics a balanced understanding of how markets clear and why they are so structured can be reached. A key focus is vertical integration, but the text offers much more. I used it as a key reference in a Henley Management College MBA dissertation on the factors influencing VI in the UK Electricity, but have found the ideas it contains to be more broadly applicable than I expected. See also papers by Coase, Harrigan, and Joskow et al if VI is your thing.

I came across this book as part of my MBA studies at the Cox School of Business. A professor recommended it for expanded understanding of vertical integration theories. In fact, my professor is cited in the book! I found it to be very valuable and plan to keep it as a reference for years to come!
