Ronald Coase turns 96 today. In honor of his birthday, the Contracting and Organizations Research Institute (CORI), whose mission and programs grow out of Coase’s work, announces the addition of the 96,000th contract to its online, full-text searchable database of contracts. Writes Director Michael Sykuta:

December 29, 2006, marks the 96th birthday of Professor Ronald Coase, the Nobel Prize winning economist whose pathbreaking work on transaction costs and property rights continues to inspire CORI’s vision and programs. Professor Coase has been more than just a intellectual inspiration for CORI, having supported CORI’s early development with contributions of his time and resources and having served on the Academic Advisory Board.

December 29, 2006, also marks the day the CORI K-Base reached 96,000 contracts, an appropriate milestone on this important day in the history of economic thought and the history of CORI. And we’re not finished growing! In fact, we’re just getting started on a new phase of expansion to make the CORI K-Base an even more valuable resource to reduce the transaction costs of doing research on the economic system and of doing the business of contracting.
