Per Bylund

Per L. Bylund, Ph.D.

I’m John F. Baugh Center Research Professor in the Department of Management & Entrepreneurship in Baylor Universitys Hankamer School of Business.

I am also associate fellow of the Ratio Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, a research fellow at the McQuinn Center of Entrepreneurial Leadership, where I blog occasionally on the Center’s blog entrepreneurship@McQuinn. I am also an Associated Scholar with the Ludwig von Mises Institute and senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises-institutet i Sverige.

My research aims to explain the market process of wealth-creation and economic development with a focus on organizations, institutions, and entrepreneurship. I have several papers on the theory of the firm, especially targeting and attempting to illuminate the economic function of the firm – both to the entrepreneur and as a means to explain the evolution of market structure.

I live in Mid-Missouri with my wife Susanne and our semi-spoiled dog Georgia.
