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

33 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 643 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 These previously unpublished essays derive from lectures originally presented at Uppsala and Lund Universities in Sweden, the Mont Pelerin Society meeting in Prague, and the Center for the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 326 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

Economic gains from storm warnings : two Florida case studies by Harold Demsetz( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A discussion of the economic gains expected from improvements in locating and tracking tropical storms that should be one result of routine observations from meteorological satellites. Two cases are studied: the City of Miami and the Florida Power and Light Company. Improved tracking of tropical storms should yield information of substantial economic value if it is used correctly. It also appears that the economic gains derivable from existing weather information are not always realized. These conclusions suggest the possibility that better weather information and improved forecasts might induce firms to capture not only additional economic gains, but also those that are already realizable."--Rand abstracts
