Old JITE Symposia Now Online

Old issues of the Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics (JITE) — by “old” I mean issues from the 1980s and 1990s, not the really old ones from the 19th century, when it was called Zeitschrift fuer die gesamte Staatswissenschaft — are finally online courtesy of the German site DigiZeitschrifte. Access is limited to members of subscribing universities (which, unfortunately, doesn’t include my own) but some of you, particularly in Europe, may be in luck. (If anyone knows other distribution channels please let me know.)

In 1986 editors Rudolf Richter and Eirik Furubotn began devoting each volume’s first issue to a symposium on the New Institutional Economics (the tradition continues today). There are terrific issues from the late 1980s and early 1990s with articles, comments, and replies by Williamson, North, Coase, Alchian, Demsetz, Tullock, Manne, Libecap, Masten, Frey, Teece, Goldberg, Alston, Wallis and many other NIE luminaries. Even T. W. Hutchison makes a couple of appearances. And don’t miss the classic Posner-Coase-Williamson exchange from 1993 (1, 2, 3, 4).

Those of us without online access might try that building — what is it called? — oh, yes, the “library.”
