4th Annual Organizational Economics Workshop

Friday 16 July 2010

Organizations play a critical role in any economy, undertaking numerous activities from production, to solving problems and generating new ideas and innovations. Effective organizational structures are critical for the success of a business, particularly in globally competitive markets. This workshop will examine a broad range of economic issues relating to organizations, including: incentive contracts with external and internal parties and managerial remuneration; the organization of production, the use of labour and wage structures; the design of hierarchies; the allocation of decision making protocols within organizations; and the optimal allocation of ownership and alternative ownership structures. We invite submission of both theoretical and empirical papers that address any issues relating to organizations. As well as universities, we also are welcome participation from the public and private sectors.
