About this Item

Hardcover. 404 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.0in.Transaction cost economics (TCE) is at the heart of the new theory of the firm. While it is an established research tradition with a well developed theoretical framework and good empirical results, critics consider TCE too limited to understand the essential characteristics of complex organizations like the firm. The criticism is that we need to go beyond the original TCE framework and develop a more pluralistic approach towards issues of economic organization. This book provides a lively debate on these issues in an open-minded, academic manner. Transaction Cost Economics and Beyond contributes to our further understanding of the theory of the firm and provides a better knowledge of the complexities of economic organization. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780792396116

About this title

Synopsis:

This book contains the papers that were presented in 1994 at the conference "Transaction Cost Economics and Beyond" organized by GRASP at the Tinbergen Institute in Rotterdam. It is generally recognized that transaction cost economics (TCE) is at the heart of the new theory of the firm. It is a well established research program with a well developed theoretical framework and good results in empirical testing. However, critics consider the approach too limited to understand the essential characteristics of such complex organizations like firms. Critics plea convincingly for the need to go beyond the original TCE framework and to develop a more pluralistic approach towards issues of economic organization. The new theory of the firm can only be further developed when scholars are willing to debate the issues in an open-minded, academic way. I thank the participants of the conference very much for putting so much effort in writing their papers and for their contribution to an open and stimulating discussion. It is my wish that this book contributes to the further deve­ lopment of the theory of the firm and that it helps us to a better understan­ ding of the complexities of economic organization. I would like to thank the following organizations for their support: the Tinbergen Institute, the "Vereniging Trust Fonds" of the Erasmus University, the Faculty of Economics of the Erasmus University, and GRASP (Group for Research and Advice in Strategic management and Industrial Policy).
