Langlois and Lien Join the O&M Team — and Foss Is Back

Since its inception in April 2006 Peter and I have been running this operation as a two-man show (with the help of some terrific guest bloggers). Peter has been the main man for the past several months, because of the time-consuming bureaucratic nightmares that I have been immersed in. The rumours that have been spreading about my virtual death are, however, exaggerated, and I will make a comeback attempt here at O&M.

Furthermore, while Peter and I enjoy writing about our own idiosyncratic interests, we think the time is right to broaden O&M’s scope by adding some permanent bloggers to the team. So, we’re pleased to announce that our longtime friends, collaborators, and former guest bloggers Dick Langlois and Lasse Lien have agreed to come on board.

Langlois is professor of economics at the University of Connecticut and adjunct professor of strategy and business history at the Copenhagen Business School. He writes on the theory of the firm, organizational boundaries, technology, the economics of institutions, the history of economic thought, and economic methodology.

Lien is associate professor of strategy and management at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH). He works in corporate strategy with an emphasis on diversification, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic positioning.

Welcome, guys!
