The economics of the business firm : seven critical commentaries by Harold Demsetz( )

35 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seven essays in this volume break new ground in the theory of the business firm and its applications in economics. A leading analyst of industrial organization, Professor Demsetz first critically examines current debates on the existence, definition, and organization of the firm discussing conceptual and theoretical issues related to the emerging theory of the firm. He then investigates and comments on contemporary treatments of the relation between business ownership, wealth, and economic development. Subsequent essays offer new perspectives on competition, profit maximization, and rational behavior, and shedding new light on managers' compensation, antitrust policy, and the accuracy of firms' accounting data. The latter themes in particular make the collection of interest to business audiences as well as to professionals and students in economics. These previously unpublished essays derive from lectures originally presented at Uppsala and Lund Universities in Sweden, the Mont Pelerin Society meeting in Prague, and the Center for the Study of Economy and the State at the University of Chicago
From economic man to economic system : essays on human behavior and the institutions of capitalism by Harold Demsetz( Book )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All but one of the essays in this volume discuss topics involving human behavior and the institutions of capitalism. The exception discusses interdisciplinary work and, particularly, the differences between the ways that biology and economics treat competition. The essays are written so as to be accessible to students of all disciplines and to all other persons interested in capitalism and in economic behavior. They are not text-like treatments, but they do offer useful supplementary readings of an unusual sort for courses in business, economics, and law in matters relating to human behavior, capitalism, ownership, markets, and firms."--Jacket
