Technology and Firm Size and Organization (Redux)
| Dick Langlois |
Peter blogged a while ago about an article by Giovanni Dosi, Alfonso Gambardella, Marco Grazzi, and Luigi Orsenigo in the bepress online journal Capitalism and Society. Both this article and the accompanying discussion by Bill Lazonick take aim at my 2003 article “The Vanishing Hand.” I have now crafted a response, which I propose to submit to the journal as a letter. But readers of O&M can read it right away here.
I should also mention that the same issue of Capitalism and Society has an interesting article on the family firm by Princeton historian Harold James, with a wonderful comment by Randall Morck. I met Morck this past November at a conference in Kyoto, and was extremely impressed.
