Douglass North's New Book
By MortazaviBlog on Aug 11, 2005
Princeton University Press, which just turned 100 years old, has published a new volume by the noted American economist Douglass North: Understanding the Process of Economic Change. (You can check out the first chapter in PDF format on PUP.)
If you're interested in transaction cost economics and the economics of property rights and technology, I highly recommend North's work, including his classic: Structure and Change in Economic History. Among other matters in this classic, North discusses the role of government as monopoly holder of violence in society.
