Graduate Level Notes on Organizational Economics

By Patrick L. Warren

Under the Resources tab, under the "Our Field" heading, you can find links to many recent syllabi for classes on organizational and institutional economics throughout the world. But I wanted draw your particular attention to an especially fine set of notes, at the PhD level, on modern organizational economics. These notes were written by Michael Powell at Northwestern Kellogg (with an assist from Dan Barron), and they cover the most basic version of some of the workhorse models in our discpline. They are great for brushing up on a model you are already familiar with or for learning the key intuitions of something new. As you might expect, given Mike and Dan's background, the notes on relational contracting are particularly good, but all the topics are excellent. They are clear, acccessible, and I commend them to your attention.
