The volume fills an important void in the ecomic literature and provides additional insights into how internal organizational structures and relationships affect ecomic as well as social outcomes...All in all, must reading for both ecomic scholars and behaviorists. Choice Traditionally, internal organizational relationships have t been linked with the orthodox theory of the firm or with explanations for ecomic growth. Organizational Capital integrates organizational behavior with ecomic theory and offers a new unifying ecomic concept: organizational capital. Tomer shows how organizational capital contributes to ecomic growth, behavior, and the productivity of the firm. Companies investing in organizational capital are creating better functioning organizations, ones with improved structures and cultures. These improvements are embodied in the organization's relationships, its members, and its repositories of information. The author also explains how the organization can function as a guide for formulating better governmental policies with respect to ecomic growth. Moreover, he believes the concept of organizational capital can help us understand how institutional arrangements contribute to ecomic as well as social outcomes. This book will help business professionals understand how the features of organizations relate to organizational performance and productivity. It facilitates understanding of the organizational reasons for the successes of leading Japanese companies, Mondragon cooperatives, and excellent U.S. companies.
