MIT/Harvard Course on Organizational EconomicsAs a follow-on to my recent post dealing with Nobel laureate Oliver Williamson's work on the boundaries of the firm, I'd mention that you can get a good idea of the state-of-the-art in the study of organizational economics by looking through the reading list for a course on that subject offered jointly by MIT and Harvard.
Taught by Prof. George Baker of MIT and Prof. Robert Gibbons of Harvard, Organizational Economics, is divided into four modules:
- Boundaries of the firm
- Employment in organizations
- Decision-making in organizations
- Structures and processes in organizations
