Overview

Augier (post-doctoral fellow, Stanford U.) and March (professor emeritus, Stanford U.) present 20 essays that explore the impact of Richard Cyert (1921-1998) on the field of economics and engage in some of the core concerns of his career. Some essays look at the economics of choice and consider the theory of the firm. Others deal with information and the cognitive basis of action, with a particular emphasis on behavioral considerations. Also considered are the economics of change as influenced by learning in organizations and the evolution of populations of organizations. Finally the economics of organization and the organizational structure of firms are discussed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
