$99.50 Paper Original
Now in its third edition, this book is one of the few texts to place any emphasis
on the importance of economic issues and developments in the study of organizations
and management. It explains in a non-technical way the behavioral theory of
the firm, game theory, agency theory, transaction cost economics, economic contributions
to strategic management, and evolutionary approaches.
No prior knowledge of economics is assumed and explanations to the economic
background needed to understand the arguments are provided in the text itself.
