    I have always wondered how long it takes him to get through that slide show. Fourteen months? That is such a spectacular display.

    On a related note: Are there undergraduate economics of organizations texts / sources that are not so firm-centric? I’m teaching an orgs course this fall and the Brickley, Smith, Zimmerman looks to have a lot of great elements, but I think there is some expectation of focusing on public orgs (bureacracy) and NGOs.

    David, Besanko et al’s _Economics of Strategy_ and Acs and Gerlowski’s _Managerial Economics and Organization_ are worthy competitors to Brickley et al. but are equally firm-centric. Gary Miller’s _Managerial Dilemmas_ might be better for a general course on organizations but is aimed more at the graduate level, I believe.
