The New Institutional Economics (NIE) Abstracting Journal is intended
to facilitate dialogue and interest in NIE research both within the
NIE community and among the broader community of scholars. The NIE
studies contract and organization and how institutions interact with
organizational arrangements. The NIE holds that institutions both
matter and are susceptible to economic analysis. Transaction costs -
sources, ramifications, and economizing - are a recurrent theme.
Topics of interest in the NIE Abstracting Journal include the
organization and boundaries of the firm, structure and performance of
contractual arrangements, the determinants and effects of property
rights and transactions costs on resource allocation and governance
institutions, the causes and effects of government regulatory and
competition policies, the structure and effects of legal, social and
political institutions on economic performance, the role and response
of organizations to innovation and technological change, and the
nature of economic development and transition economies. The NIE
advances a predictive theory of economic organization that invites
empirical testing and yields numerous public policy ramifications,
many of which differ from orthodoxy. The NIE Abstracting Journal is
an appropriate outlet for authors from a wide range of social science
disciplines, including political science, sociology, law,
anthropology, cognitive science, evolutionary biology, and any other
discipline that that sheds light on the rules, norms and beliefs that
govern human interactions in the process of production and exchange.
