The Handbook of Organizational Economics
Edited by Robert Gibbons & John Roberts

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"As Herbert Simon has noted, ours is an organizational economy at least as much as it is a market economy, and this handbook is an invaluable guide to the great strides that organizational economics is making in understanding it. The contributions are uniformly thoughtful and interesting, they cover an impressive range of topics, and are uniquely attentive to developments in related social sciences. I cannot recommend it more highly."--Ezra W. Zuckerman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"Over the past few decades, the economics of organizations has developed a body of work that has deep theoretical and empirical implications for just about every field of economics. This comprehensive overview provides lucid, readable, and often very entertaining summaries of what this relatively new field has to offer economists looking for a better understanding of, as the book puts it, 'the existence, nature, design, and performance of organizations.'"--Ray Fisman, coauthor of The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office

"This unique handbook provides a very comprehensive overview of organizational economics, with a list of contributors that reads like a who's who of top scholars in the economics profession. I can think of no other volume that even comes close. I predict that this book will be highly influential."--Wouter Dessein, Columbia University
