Congratulations to Joe Histen, who successfully defended his dissertation on Monday, August 22. His thesis is titled Three Essays on Institutions and Organizations. Joe quickly headed out to Ohio, where he has already started the semester as a new assistant professor at the College of Wooster.
Meanwhile, my former student Leshui He, now at Bates College, has recently published in the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. The paper, which emerged from Leshui’s dissertation, is called “Beyond Asset Ownership: Employment and Assetless Firms in the Property Rights theory of the Firm.”
