Since its emergence in the 1970s, transaction cost economics (TCE) has become a leading approach in the research on contracts, firm organization and strategy, antitrust, marketing, inter-firm collaboration and entrepreneurship.

Regulation and distribution of wine in the United States by Michelle Lee Mullins( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation provides an empirical linkage between New Institutional Economics and the United States alcohol industry, with a specific look at the wine industry. Using an institutional economics framework, it analyzes the motivations for the industry's current regulatory environment, examines the impact of a changing institutional environment on contractual relations between parties in the wine value chain, and explores the criteria that wineries use to choose among alternate organizational forms. The analyses directly contribute to three sets of literature, literature on the impact of institutions, literature on general organizational design and governance, and specific literature on wineries' organizational designs. The first two literatures are mostly academic, while the last is of direct importance to the wine industry. The overarching theme of the dissertation is that institutions matter- they matter to the ways that firms structure their businesses and the ways that firms facilitate their transactions

Political economy, political entrepreneurship and biofuels regulation in the US by Paula T Moura( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper draws on theories of regulation from the political entrepreneurship and political economy fields to explore the dynamics of the US biofuels market. The conducted case study addresses questions regarding the life cycle and development of this industry and attempts to identify the actors, the roles they play(ed) and the driving forces shaping it. Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is identified as having played a significant role through exercising immense political entrepreneurship, which laid ground for the present market. As the market matured, profit incentives stimulated the emergence of competing actors, who in their combined actions, shaped regulation of the biofuels industry. Although interest group action may not be the only factor explaining the creation and persistence of the US biofuels market, I conclude that it is a significant factor
