The Origin and the Evolution of Firms: Information as a Driving Force
by J. A. Roels
Publisher: IOS Press 2012
Number of pages: 232
This book develops a consistent theory of evolution in its wider sense, examining the information based laws and forces that drive it. Exploring subjects as diverse as economics and the theories of thermodynamics, the author revisits the paradox of the apparent conflict between the laws of thermodynamics and evolution to arrive at a systems theory, tracing a continuous line of evolving information sets that connect the Big-Bang to the firms and markets of our current socio-economic system.

Strigl's important work is translated to English. The book links Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk's production theory and Mises's business cycle theory, and gives a pathbreaking account of the role of consumers' goods within the structure of production.
by Roy Cordato - Ludwig von Mises Institute
This important book is a thorough and extensive study, in which Cordato shows that there is no standard by which we can judge efficiency apart from the market standard, and no way to adjudicate property rights apart from exchange relationships.
