The Economics of Business Culture: Game Theory, Transaction Costs, and Economic Performance
AbstractIn this book the author analyses the economic effects of culture. By culture he means social values such as honesty, dedication, and loyalty. He argues that the gains from technology in modern societies can be offset by high cost stemming from the missing moral dimension, and that this has implications both for economic competitiveness and for social and economic institutions such as families and trade unions.
