Silverman’s Transaction Cost Economics Primer


Way Signs "Outsourcing - In-House Solutions"Firms often make errors in selecting governance forms and the scope of the firm.

Brian Silverman provides just that tool in a sequence of three short videos.

I might add that this overview provides an excellent introduction for PhD students prior to diving into academic readings on the topic.
