Life and Legacy of Oliver Williamson
- 139 Downloads
With the exception of a two-year period, from 1963 to 1965, when he taught at the University of California, Berkeley, Williamson spent the majority of his early career barely a stone’s throw away from the Carnegie Institute of Technology. Much of his career was devoted to the Department of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, where he spent the academic years from 1965–6 to 1983. There he twice chaired the economics department, in 1971–2 and in 1976–7. He eventually earned a joint appointment and worked with colleagues at their School of Public and Urban Policy and with the School of Law.
