Theory of the Firm

2 credits/4ECTS

by Judit Kapás (University of Debrecen)

October 8 – 19, 2007, 18:00 – 19:30, classroom RB 337

The theory of the firm was launched by Ronald Coase’s seminal question: “… if production is regulated by price movements, production could be carried on without any organization at all; well might we ask, why is there any organization? “ (Coase 1937:388). Since the 1970s, after a relatively long period of neglect, economic theories of the firm have largely developed and become increasingly influential.

The aim of this course is to provide a structured introduction to the main theories of economic organization. Among them, the course will deal with the post-Coasean theories such as transaction cost theory, nexus of contract view, agency theory, as well as with the other major branch, the competence (knowledge)-based view. More recently insights from Austrian economics also penetrated the theory of the firm, forming an Austrian theory of the firm. The course will devote special attention to these.

Judit Kapás is an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Debrecen, Hungary. Her fields of research include the theory of the firm, institutional analysis and Austrian economics. She has conducted research at various foreign research institutes such as ATOM (University of Paris 1), IRES (University of Louvain), ICER (Turin). Last year she was awarded the Bolyai Plaquette, a prominent prize awarded by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences for excellence in research.
