In this part of the website the intention is to facilitate discussion on the general topic of the economics of the firm. Any ENEF academic can post papers that can be downloaded. Direct feedback to the author is then possible using email. The posted papers will not be refereed. But people offering submissions should take it on themselves to make sure that their papers fall within the general objectives of ENEF with the intention being to promote research and discussion on the economics of the firm particularly using economics as the base for an interdisciplinary perspective. To post submissions email them, in either Word or pdf format and in English, to Mike Dietrich: m.dietrich@shef.ac.uk.

To open any paper click on the title. The papers are in either Word or pdf format. If you don't have Adobe Reader, for the pdf format, it can be dowloaded for free by clicking here.
