AER (June 2010)

The latest volume of the American Economic Review (link to the table of contents) just arrived by mail. One may get interested in the lead-off articles written by the Nobel laureates 2009 in Economic Sciences:
"Beyond Markets and States: Polycentric Governance of Complex Economic Systems" by Elinor Ostrom
"Transaction Cost Economics: The Natural Progression" by Oliver E. Williamson
Other articles that attracted my interest are the following:
  • "A Study of the Internal Organization of a Bidding Cartel" by John Asker
  • "Bargaining with Arrival of New Traders" by William Fuchs and Andrzej Skrzypacz
  • "The Burden of the Nondiversifiable Risk of Entrepreneurship" by Robert E. Hall and Susan E. Woodward
  • "What Causes Industry Agglomeration? Evidence from Coagglomeration Patterns" by Glenn Ellison, Edward L. Glaeser and William R. Kerr
I downloaded the pdf files of the above articles, trying to read them on the way to Brazil tomorrow, where I will attend a great game theory conference: The Second Brazilian Workshop of the Game Theory Society (BWGT2010, link).
