The 2009 Nobel Prize-winning Economist, Dr. Elinor Ostrom, visits GMU

Yesterday the Mercatus Center at George Mason University hosted an unforgettable evening with Dr. Elinor Ostrom, the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics. More than 300 people came to see her and hear about a new book Challenging Institutional Analysis and Development: The Bloomington School written by George Mason University's Professor Peter Boettke and the Mercatus Center's Senior Research Fellow Paul Aligica. I've already blogged about this book. Once again, I strongly recommend you reading this book. And don't forget to read Governing The Commons. Both books provide invaluable insights in the modern understanding of institutional analysis and economic development. These books have so many ideas that can be easily applied to the transitional experience of post-socialist countries. Btw, here is a video from the event.
And on a final note, I just want to show off a page from my copy of Governing The Commons signed by Dr. Ostrom.
