Title : Organizations, Decisions, and Information in Developing and Developed Economies
In this workshop we'll discuss several questions I think should be at the forefront of organizational economics, including: what are important differences in organizational structure, design, and efficiency across developed and developing economies? How does organizational design influence decision-making (especially in governance) and information generation and transmission (especially in media)? What are concrete implications for policy and welfare in developing and developed economies? We'll talk about how they've been studied so far, and what I hope future research explores. I hope to give you a sense of why I think these are interesting, salient, and socially important questions that economists have a unique ability to investigate.
