This seminar will help students develop an approach to such a question through a sampling of the literature on the economics of institutions and organizations. We will address key concepts such as property rights, transaction costs, agency theory, and information costs to motivate how individuals organize and contract in response to their institutional environment. And we use these tools to explore issues including the nature of public versus private provision of goods and services, and the natural resource utilization.
