Advanced Introduction to New Institutional Economics

Advanced Introduction to New Institutional Economics, edited by Claude Menard and Mary Shirley, has been published by Elward Elgar Publishers. The book explores NIE’s answers to fundamental questions about the organization, growth, and development of economies. Why are some countries rich and others poor? Why are activities organized as firms or markets or through alternative organizational solutions? When are shared resources overexploited? Edward Elgar has agreed to give a 50% discount to Coase Institute alumni and faculty when they go to this page on the Edward Elgar website and enter the code MENA50. This code can be redeemed until the end of March.
