Abstract:
The economic theory of transaction costs, as formulated by Williamson, springs from his interest in studies that explain the way markets function, combining this explanation with the institutional framework in which markets develop, in an industrial economy and the economy of organizations (Coase, 1937, 1972; Bain, 1956, 1958; Alchian, 1965, 1969; Alchian and Demsetz, 1972; Arrow, 1959, 1973, 1974; Demsetz, 1991, 1995), to his interest in the studies that form the basis of organizational theory (Barnard, 1938; Cyert and March, 1963; Simon, 1947, 1983; Chandler, 1962; Ouchi, 1979, 1980). It is also the fruit of his philosophical and theoretical vocation, which took a strong hold when, following his education as an engineer at MIT, he found himself at Stanford where he came across the Principles of Samuelson and shortly after, in the then named Carnegie Tech, he tackled organizational problems through the classes of James March and Herbert Simon.
These economic and social problems were to him a fascinating set of questions that could be studied from the perspective of his competences as an engineer, and which were studied, above all, from the viewpoint of his philosophical capacity and theoretical reflection. While reminiscing about that time, Williamson says that “Carnegie was a perfectly incredible experience. The hum of research activity was evident upon walking through the doors,” (Williamson, 1986: xiii).
