The fortunes of liberalism : essays on Austrian economics and the ideal of freedom by Friedrich A. von Hayek( Book )
20 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Hayek's well-known social and political philosophy - in particular his long-held pessimistic view of the prospects of socialism, irrefutably vindicated by the collapse of the Eastern bloc - is fully grounded in the Austrian approach to economics." "In this collection, Hayek traces his intellectual roots to the Austrian school, the century-old tradition founded at the University of Vienna by Carl Menger, and links it to the modern rebirth of classical liberal or libertarian thought." "Included in The Fortunes of Liberalism are two memoirs, "The Economics of the 1920s as Seen from Vienna," published here for the first time, and "The Rediscovery of Freedom: Personal Recollections," available for the first time in English." "One of our preeminent philosophers and social theorists, Hayek provides an invaluable education in a subject that is nothing less than the development ofthe modern world."--BOOK JACKET
Organizing entrepreneurial judgment : a new approach to the firm by Nicolai J Foss( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Entrepreneurship, long neglected by economists and management scholars, has made a dramatic comeback in the last two decades, not only among academic economists and management scholars, but also among policymakers, educators and practitioners. Likewise, the economic theory of the firm, building on Ronald Coase's (1937) seminal analysis, has become an increasingly important field in economics and management. Despite this resurgence, there is still little connection between the entrepreneurship literature and the literature on the firm, both in academia and in management practice. This book fills this gap by proposing and developing an entrepreneurial theory of the firm that focuses on the connections between entrepreneurship and management. Drawing on insights from Austrian economics, it describes entrepreneurship as judgmental decision made under uncertainty, showing how judgment is the driving force of the market economy and the key to understanding firm performance and organization"--
Entrepreneurship and the firm : Austrian perspectives on economic organization by N. J Foss( Book )
12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While characteristically "Austrian" economic themes are clearly relevant to the business firm, Austrian economists have said little about management, organization and strategy. The 12 chapters in this work seek to advance the understanding of these issues by drawing on Austrian ideas
The Elgar companion to transaction cost economics by Peter G Klein( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its emergence in the 1970s, transaction cost economics (TCE) has become a leading approach in the research on contracts, firm organization and strategy, antitrust, marketing, inter-firm collaboration and entrepreneurship. With contributions by leading scholars in economics, law and business administration - including Oliver E. Williamson, recipient of the 2009 Nobel Prize in economics for his development of the transaction cost approach - this volume reviews the latest developments in TCE and applies them to contemporary theoretical and empirical problems. Beginning with an introductory

Heterogeneous capital, entrepreneurship, and economic Organization by Kirsten Foss( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We outline an Austrian approach to economic organization based on the entrepreneur and the Austrian idea of capital as heterogeneous and time-dimensioned, tow themes associated with Israel Kirzner's contributions. We provide a novel interpretation of capital heterogeneity based on the notion of attributes, argue that attributes are costly to measure and that this links directly to the theory of economic organization. In particular, we develop insights in economic organization based on the notion that entrepreneurs will often have to experiment with capital assets to gauge the value of these assets when deployed in production
Alertness, Judgment, and the Antecedents of Entrepreneurship by Nicolai J Foss( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper offers a critical perspective on Israel Kirzner's basic analytical framework. Specifically, we characterize Kirzner's emphasis on processes of equilibration as a departure from the causal-realist price theory developed by Menger and his nineteenth- and twentieth-century followers. In this context, we contrast Kirzner's interpretation of entrepreneurship as discovery with a more realistic, and operationally meaningful, idea of entrepreneurship as action. Finally, we discuss an inconsistency in Kirzner's treatment of the antecedents of entrepreneurial behavior
Austrian Capital Theory and the Link Between Entrepreneurship and the Theory of the Firm by Kirsten Foss( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Several writers link entrepreneurship to asset ownership, trying to incorporate the theory of entrepreneurship into the theory of the firm. The critical link, we argue, is capital heterogeneity. Transaction cost, property rights, and resourcebased approaches to the firm assume that assets, both tangible and intangible, are heterogeneous; arranging these assets to minimize contractual hazards, to provide efficient investment incentives, or to exploit competitive advantage is conceived as the prime task of economic organization. None of these approaches, however, is based on a systematic theory of capital heterogeneity. In this paper we outline the approach to capital developed by the Austrian school of economics and integrate it into an entrepreneurial theory of the firm. We refine Austrian capital theory by defining capital heterogeneity in terms of subjectively perceived attributes, that is, the functions, characteristics, and uses of capital assets. Such attributes are not given, but have to be discovered by means of entrepreneurial action. Thinking of entrepreneurship as the organization of heterogeneous capital provides new insights into the emergence, boundaries, and internal organization of the firm, and it suggests testable implications about how and where entrepreneurship is manifested. Keywords: Entrepreneurship, heterogeneous assets, judgment, ownership, firm boundaries, internal organization. JEL Codes: B53, D23, L2
Heterogeneous Resources and the Financial Crisis : Implications of Strategic Management Theory by Rajshree Agarwal( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Macroeconomic theory assumes that factors of production in the economy are homogeneous and fungible. As a result, it may be ill-suited for developing policy responses to the recent financial crisis. Theories of strategic management and organization, with their emphasis on heterogeneously distributed resources and capabilities, may be better positioned. Examples of where macroeconomic theory may lead policies astray, and where theories of strategic management may be more appropriate, are provided

Entrepreneurship and the Economics of the Firm by Nicolai J Foss( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of entrepreneurship and the study of economic organizing lack contact. In fact, the modern theory of the firm virtually ignores entrepreneurship, while the literature on entrepreneurship often sees little value in the economic theory of the firm. In contrast, we argue in this chapter that entrepreneurship theory and the theory of the firm can be usefully integrated, and that doing so would improve both bodies of theory. Adding the entrepreneur to the theory of the firm provides a dynamic view that the overly static analysis of firm organizing cannot support. Moreover, adding the firm to the study of the entrepreneur provides important clues to how we can understand entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurial Alertness and Opportunity Discovery : Origins, Attributes, Critique by Nicolai J Foss( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Israel Kirzner's concept of entrepreneurship as alertness to profit opportunities is one of the most influential modern interpretations of the entrepreneurial function. Shane and Venkataraman's (2000: 218) influential assessment defines entrepreneurship research as "the scholarly examination of how, by whom, and with what effects opportunities to create future goods and services are discovered, evaluated, and exploited." As such, "the field involves the study of sources of opportunities; the processes of discovery, evaluation, and exploitation of opportunities; and the set of individuals who discover, evaluate, and exploit them." Shane's General Theory of Entrepreneurship (2003) cites Kirzner and "Kirznerian opportunities" more than any writer other than Joseph Schumpeter. More generally, the entrepreneurial opportunity, rather than the individual entrepreneur, the startup company, or the new product, has become the centerpiece of the academic study of entrepreneurship
The Emergence of the Modern Theory of the Firm by Nicolai J Foss( )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We discuss the emergence of the theory of the firm (in the Coasian sense); survey and discuss the main currents of the theo~y of the firm, and discuss what has determined the emergence of the theory of the firm. We argue that advances in the theory of the firm have been strongly influenced by conceptual innovations in (mainstream) economics in general and by the ongoing division of labour in economics in tandem with a recognition of the importance of a number of empirical anomalies The substantive borrowing from neighbouring disciplines, such as business history, law, psychology, organizational sociology and business administration has been relatively limited and ad hoc (although some scholars, notably Williamson, have made more substantive use of these disciplines than othe~s) The fact that the theory of the firm has stayed relatively close in to the (changing) economic mainstream and that its substantive borrowing from neighbouring disciplines has been relatively limited unde~lie and explain much of the "external" critique of the theory (i.e., the critiques of sociologists, heterodox economists and management scholars)
