RBV Primer

With Nils Stieglitz I have written “Modern Resource-Based Theory(ies)” (creative title, eh?) for the Handbook on the Economics and Theory of the Firm (apparently, “economics” and “theory” are different things), edited by Michael Dietrich and Jackie Krafft (Edward Elgar, 2011). The paper is mainly an overview. However, we also argue that there are many indications that the different strands of the RBV are increasingly converging.

    An essay on the micro-foundations for the RBV. Basic message: We need to go beyond slamming capabilities ideas etc. for lacking micro-foundations and start doing something concretely, i.e., actually build those foundations. I then discuss various research directions.
