My research is in the intersection of strategic management, entrepreneurship, and economics of organizations and institutions. I attempt to explain the market process of wealth-creation and economic development with a focus on organizations, institutions, and entrepreneurship. My research also targets applied aspects, primarily the effect of regulation (artificial stimuli or deterrents) on the market system and its performance.
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 am also working on two books, one delineating my approach and the other applying it, both of which are currently under contract.
Specifically, my research interests include business and corporate strategy, industry structure and evolution, economic theories of the firm, strategic factor markets, strategic entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship and innovation, effects of regulation, and Austrian economics. I also do and enjoy work in related fields, especially capital theory, economic growth and development, and political economy.
