Winter Term 2018 TOP: INSTITNL & ORGNZTNL ANALY - 1494 - ECON 495

Prerequisites/Notes: ECON 300

Catalog Description : Topics will vary with instructor and year; thus, if the substance of the course changes, students may take Advanced Topics more than once. Each offering will employ analytical techniques developed in the intermediate-level courses (Economics 300, 320, and 380.) Substantive topics might include, but would not be limited to, economics of the arts, economics of sports, computational finance, international finance, public sector economics, economics of the environment, and studies of specific industries.

Topic for Winter 2018: Institutional and Organizational Analysis
The course introduces instititional and organizational economics (institutions, property rights, transaction costs) to the conventional neoclassical economics paradigm to understand contractual choice and economic performance. It also applies fundamental economic and social science tools, such as agency theory, the Coase Theorem, credible commitments, structure-induced equilibrium, and the Riker Objection, to the study of formal policy institutions.
