Description - The Growth of the Firm by Christos Pitelis
Edith Penrose has been one of the most significant economists of the second part of the 20th century. Her contribution to the theory of the firm reinvented and developed the classical tradition in economics, and informed the currently dominant, knowledge-based theory of the firm. This volume builds on a special issue of "Contributions to Political Economy" that celebrated 40 years since Penrose's publication "The Theory of the Growth of the Firm". The book includes 15 chapters by leading contributors on the aforementioned aspects of Penrose's work and is intended for academics and postgraduate students in the fields of strategic management, organization studies, international business, economic history, industrial economics, and managerial economics.
