12/03/2004 - E 2099 New Institutional Economics
The lecture on Thursday 18 March will be cancelled. We will decide upon the substitution for it at the next lecture which will take place on Thursday 25 March. Assigned papers for that lecture are Williamson (1985) and Bolton-Scharfstein (1998) - see the web page of the course.
How does economic performance depend on ownership structures of firms and banks? How does the American-type capitalism differ from that of Italy or Japan? How do institutions matter? The neo-classical economics cannot answer these questions but the NEW INSTITUTIONAL ECONOMICS can. Graduate students are welcome to visit the course on Thursday 12:30, room 601. This course connects economic theory to reality, is full of students discussions and is open to everybody. Just come and see on Thursday.
