it's awesome that you are really interested in reading and
then discussing together.
It is also a good suggestion to start with the short piece. For the first
session, I suggest we start with:
"Coase’s Penguin, or, Linux and The Nature of the Firm":
"The Nature of the firm": http://www.sonoma.edu/users/e/eyler/426/coase1.pdf
It is great to read both pieces, so we have both the economics and the law
I have created a poll to determine the date for the first meetup of the
OpenEcon Book Club:
The location will be confirmed - probably a nice café, suitable for a
Sunday tea and cake.
If you are interested in joining and don't live in London - don't worry, I
would connect you one the day via skype.
