5:00 p.m. Conclusion
In our 2013-2014 discussions on the Boundaries of the Firm, we explore the boundaries of the ‘firm’ as a concept useful for analyzing the various historical forms in which economic production and distribution have been organized and coordinated. The contemporary model of the firm has a complex history. Over the past century, it has experienced significant modifications that reflect changes in the way firms have been conceptualized. In light of the proven adaptability of this concept, our goal is to explore the idea of firm organization by expanding the range of its historical application in order to test the wider applicability of a model developed for contemporary contexts and perhaps to modify the model to increase its utility for understanding diverse historical types of firm-like organization.
Hosted by Professors Glen Weyl, Alain Bresson, and David Schloen
