Designed to connect economic theory to practical issues faced by firm managers. Focus is on the way economic theory affects the firm's behavior both internally and externally. Internal issues include organizational structure and contract design, especially as these issues relate to opportunism, rent-seeking and asymmetric information. External issues include discussions of corporate strategy, advertising and the market for corporate control.
