I’m delighted to introduce my friend and colleague Mike Sykuta as our newest guest blogger. Mike is Director of the Contracting and Organizations Research Institute (CORI) here at the University of Missouri. Mike and CORI played a big role in attracting me to Missouri in 2002 and we’ve worked closely together on many projects since then.

Mike got his Ph.D. in economics at Washington University in St. Louis and identifies with the Coase and North branch of the new institutional economics. (He is sympathetic to Williamsonian TCE but has not yet drunk the Kool-Aid.) Mike is co-editor of SSRN’s NIE Abstracting Journals, along with Mary Shirley, and is involved with ISNIE and ESNIE. He works on contracting, corporate governance, and the political economy of regulation. He teaches an MBA/MS-level course on the economics of transactions and contracting, doctoral seminars on firm and industry organization, and the capstone undergraduate strategy course in the agribusiness management program. Mike is almost as much a Luddite as Nicolai — he acquired his first mobile phone just a short while ago — and I’m glad he’s finally decided to give some 21st-century technology a try. Welcome, Mike!
