The firm, the market, and the law by R. H Coase( Book )

81 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 1,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few other economists have been read and cited as often as R.H. Coase has been, even though, as he admits, "most economists have a different way of looking at economic problems and do not share my conception of the nature of our subject." Coase's particular interest has been that part of economic theory that deals with firms, industries, and markets -- what is known as price theory or microeconomics. He has always urged his fellow economists to examine the foundations on which their theory exists, and this volume collects some of his classic articles probing those very foundations. "The Nature of the Firm" (1937) introduced the then-revolutionary concept of transaction costs into economic theory. "The Problem of Social Cost" (1960) further developed this concept, emphasizing the effect of the law on the working of the economic system. The remaining papers and new introductory essay clarify and extend Coarse's arguments and address his critics. Many economists today approach economics as technicians. Coase approaches it as a philosopher. He thinks and writes in a dep and contemplative way, and his work is rooted in a careful and deliberate scrutiny of real conditions and a thinking through of their consequences
Essays on economics and economists by R. H Coase( Book )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these fifteen essays on the history and philosophy of economics, Coase reflects on some of the most fundamental concerns of economists over the past two centuries: How do economists decide what questions to address and how to choose their theories? How do they tackle the problems of the economic system and give advice on public policy? In his distinctive, lucid style, Coase examines economic theory from Adam Smith to George J. Stigler and offers his unique perspective on the future of the field
How China became capitalist by R. H Coase( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How China Became Capitalist details the extraordinary, and often accidental, journey that China has taken over the past thirty years in transforming itself from a closed agrarian socialist economy to an indomitable force in the international arena. The authors revitalize the debate around the development of the Chinese system through the use of primary sources. They persuasively argue that the reforms implemented by the Chinese leaders did not represent a concerted attempt to create a capitalist economy, but that the ideas from the West eventually culminated in a fundamental change to their socialist model, forming an accidental path to capitalism. Coase and Wang argue that the pragmatic approach of "seeking truth from fact" is in fact much more in line with Chinese culture. How China Became Capitalist challenges the received wisdom about the future of the Chinese economy, arguing that while China has enormous potential for growth, this could be hampered by the leaders' propensity for control, both in terms of economics and their monopoly of ideas and power"--Provided by publisher

A conversation with Ronald H. Coase( Visual )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ronald H. Coase received the 1991 Nobel Prize in Economic Science. His articles "The problem of social cost" and "The nature of the firm" are among the most important, and most often cited works in the whole of economic literature. He has taught at the University of Chicago since 1964, and was editor of the very influential Journal of law and economics from 1964 until 1982. During that time, he recounts how he used the journal to encourage "economists and lawyers to write about the way in which actual markets operate, and about how governments actually perform in regulating or undertaking economic activities."

Economic forces at work by Armen Albert Alchian( Book )

3 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1950, Armen Alchian published his paper "Uncertainty, Evolution and Economic Theory" (reprinted in this volume), a paper of striking originality, whose importance was immediately perceived and which gained him international recognition. It was clear that economics had a new master. Alchian has made important contributions to the economic analysis of inflation and unemployment and to the theory of costs and of the firm. He has played the leading role in the development of a theory of property rights. His writing is distinguished by his ability to disentangle the essential from the trivial and, above all, by his skill in showing how the same basic economic forces are at work in a wide variety of apparently completely different social settings
