Coase ACoase BCoase C
Ronald Harry Coase (1910- )

Coase's page
He won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1991. He is best known for his fundamental insight on why firms exist, which, according to Coase, is due to the existence of transactions costs. This insight was labeled "Coase Theorem" by economist George Stigler. Coase also applied the concept of transaction costs to public goods. Coase challenged the long held view of the necessity of government intervention by looking at Pigou's example of the cattle rancher's cows destroying neighboring crops under the assumption of zero transactions costs. In reality, transactions costs are never zero, and thus, courts would still be needed. His Nobel speech may be found at this page. He says there "My life has been interesting, concerned with academic affairs and on the whole successful. But, on almost all occasions, what I have done has been determined by factors which were no part of my choosing. I have had "greatness thrust upon me"." Also, "I wrote another article, The Problem of Social Cost, in which I expounded my views at greater length, more precisely and without reference to my previous article. This article, which appeared early in 1961, unlike my earlier article on The Nature of the Firm, was an instant success. It was, and continues to be, much discussed. Indeed it is probably the most widely cited article in the whole of the modern economic literature."
