  2. Institutional Entrepreneurship

    Institutional Entrepreneurship

    Edited by Magnus Henrekson, Tino Sanandaji
    The growing recognition of the extent to which institutions determine economic outcomes has been one of the key developments in economic research and policy analysis in the last two decades. At the same time, the entrepreneur has made a comeback, resurrected as one of the prime value creators in society. This comprehensive volume builds on Baumol’s 1990 framework to categorize and classify the growing research field that explores the interplay between institutions and entrepreneurship. It also contains the unique feature of examining the ways in which entrepreneurs themselves shape institutions. Learn More

    Financial Instability and Economic Security after the Great Recession

    Edited by Charles J. Whalen
    This timely book rethinks economic theory and policy by addressing the problem of economic instability and the need to secure broadly shared prosperity. It stresses that advancing economics in the wake of the Great Recession requires an evolutionary standpoint, greater attention to uncertainty and expectations, and the integration of finance into macroeconomics. The result is a broader array of policy options – and challenges – than conventional economics presents. Learn More

  10. Does Economic Governance Matter?

    Does Economic Governance Matter?

    Edited by Mehmet Ugur, David Sunderland
    This book contributes to the growing governance literature in three ways. First, it extends the analysis to new areas such as power asymmetry, regulation, transnational company strategies, and law enforcement. Secondly, it examines the role of formal institutions that shape and enforce the rules/norms codified in law; but also private-ordering institutions that function under the umbrella of the State; and private institutions (such as market rules/norms) that provide reputational and other information that foster compliance. Finally, the book extends and enriches the governance debate, addressing issues such as the determinants of institutional quality and efficiency, and the interaction between actor networks and institutional norms.

  11. The Nature of the New Firm

    The Nature of the New Firm

    Edited by Killian J. McCarthy, Maya Fiolet, Wilfred Dolfsma
    Globalization has created new ways of doing business, new institutions to oversee them, and has introduced a spectrum of new protagonists to the international arena. Scholars and practitioners have been challenged by the evolving environment to find new ways to interact and, in the process, many of the traditional boundaries that have existed within and between organizations and institutions have become increasingly blurred. This unique compendium sheds light on these and other topics on the question of change, both within and between organizations and institutions. The contributors have expertly combined the insights of some of the biggest names in the fields of economics, business and strategic management, both present and future – and in doing so offer scholars a tailor-made, up-to-date study on the topic of economic change.

  13. Institutional Variety in East Asia

    Institutional Variety in East Asia

    Edited by Werner Pascha, Cornelia Storz, Markus Taube
    This illuminating book broadly addresses the emerging field of ‘diversity of capitalism’ from a comparative institutional approach.

These countries are of particular interest due to the fact that they are often considered to have developed their own peculiar blend of models of capitalism. Learn More

  14. Markets and Market Institutions: Their Origin and Evolution

    Markets and Market Institutions: Their Origin and Evolution

    Edited by Mark Casson
    The origin of markets is a central issue in economics and economic history, but until now there has been no definitive reference source on the subject. This authoritative collection fills the gap by reprinting key papers analysing the evolution of markets over the past millennium. These papers, written by leading scholars in the field, relate market development to urban growth, the spread of the credit system, and the evolution of capitalism. They show that markets did not evolve in a purely spontaneous fashion, but as part of the planned development of market centres by local landowners and business people. This volume, with an original introduction by the editor, will serve as an excellent reference tool to students, academics and practitioners interested in the broad field of economics and economic history, and market evolution in particular.

    Edited by Eirik G. Furubotn, Rudolf Richter

This invaluable collection of essays brings together important papers by authors working in the tradition of the new institutional economics. The editors have provided an original introduction which presents a comprehensive overview of their selection. Learn More
