Many of the fundamental questions in social science entail an examination of the role played by social institutions. Why do we have so many social institutions? Why do they take one form in one society and quite different ones in others? In what ways do these institutions develop? When and why do they change? Institutions and Social Conflict addresses these questions in two ways. First it offers a thorough critique of a wide range of theories of institutional change, from the classical accounts of Smith, Hume, Marx and Weber to the contemporary approaches of evolutionary theory, the theory of social conventions and the new institutionalism. Secondly, it develops a new theory of institutional change that emphasises the distributional consequences of social institutions. The emergence of institutions is explained as a by-product of distributional conflict in which asymmetries of power in a society generate institutional solutions to conflicts.

Institutional Economics in France and Germany: German Ordoliberalism versus the French Regulation School [книги]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-03-2008Ред.: Agnes Labrousse
Изд-во: Springer, 2000, 384 с.
German Ordoliberalism and French Regulation theory, two institutionalist theories born in different national contexts, show striking convergences and complementarities. Based on an original comparison, Institutional Economics in France and Germany analyses the basic concepts, the development and the present relevance of both schools, the way they deal with the crucial methodological issue of complexity and with transformation in post-socialist Europe. It underlines the specificity and fruitfulness of these European approaches to institutional economics, often unfortunately ignored in the English-language literature. Written by leading scholars, this book is a clear presentation of both theories, with numerous illustrations and in-depth analysis of recent research developments. This theoretical, methodological and thematic comparison raises central issues in the growing field of socioeconomic and institutionalist theory.

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002
Laffont here constructs a normative approach to constitutional design using recent developments in contract theory. He treats political economy as the study of the incentive problems created by the delegation of economic policy to self-interested politicians. Treating politicians successively as informed supervisors or residual decision-makers, he characterizes the optimal constitutional responses to the activities of interest groups in various circumstances, as well as the optimal trade-off between flexibility of decision-making and discretion to pursue personal agendas.

Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2002
In this book, Jean-Jacques Laffont and David Martimort present the most thorough yet accessible introduction to incentives theory to date. Central to this theory is a simple question as pivotal to modern-day management as it is to economics research: What makes people act in a particular way in an economic or business situation? In seeking an answer, the authors provide the methodological tools to design institutions that can ensure good incentives for economic agents.

Trust, Ethnicity and Identity deals with the economic role of laws and institutions in achieving social order in a decentralized economy. Specifically, this book considers the coordinating role of three major nonprice institutions - ethnic trading networks, contract law, and gift-exchange - in economizing on transaction costs and thus facilitating the process of exchange in decentralized economies in different historical contexts.

Comparative Political Economy is a student's introduction to the comparative analysis of nations, public policy and economic affluence. It surveys the dominant theoretical approaches and describes the countries: developed Western countries, rapidly changing East European nations, and states in the Third World. Economic, social, and political developments are analysed at length and the basis concepts - democracy versus authoritarian systems and capitalist systems versus socialist ones - are employed to illuminate similarities and differences between politico-economic systems in the world. It explores the conditions for political democracy as well as the conditions for economic growth, applying quantitative techniques to crucial problems in political economy cocerning the interaction between politics and economics.

This book analyzes the institutions--incentives and constraints--that guide the behavior of persons involved in the implementation of aid programs. While traditional performance studies tend to focus almost exclusively on policies and institutions in recipient countries, the authors look at incentives in the entire chain of organizations involved in the delivery of foreign aid, from donor governments and agencies to consultants, experts and other intermediaries. They examine incentives inside donor agencies, the interaction of subcontractors with recipient organizations, incentives inside recipient country institutions, and biases in aid performance monitoring systems.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the empirically-based literature on contracting and organization to a student audience. This literature derives from the work of R.H. Coase, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1991. It includes studies of a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, electric power generation, fast food, petroleum, coke, soft drink distribution, shoe manufacturing, timber harvesting, transportation, and tuna processing. More important than any of the specific industries or practices represented is that each study illustrates important principles of organization that generalize to commercial transactions in other settings.
Mattei U. Comparative law and economics / U. Mattei. Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1997. 266 p. [книга]
Опубликовано на портале: 20-10-2003
Mattei shows how concepts from economics can be applied to the study of comparative law. He then applies the concepts to several significant problems in comparative law, including the history and sources of law, differences between civil and common law systems, and the reasons for legal change and the movement of law from one country to another. He looks at specific problems in property, contracts, and trust law. Finally he uses the insights he has developed to understand the issues involved in changing law in developing countries and in formerly socialist countries.
