A graduate of Allegheny College, Tomas Nonnenmacher is an expert on industrial organization, economic history, and new institutional economics. He writes: “The classes I teach in the managerial track fit into the general field of transaction cost economics. One central question that we ask is why some firms are big while others are small. What contractual costs are involved in outsourcing certain production processes? What cost reductions can be realized from internalizing certain transactions?” Nonnenmacher is the author of the forthcoming publication “Stability and Change in Revolutionary Yucatán: Two Case Studies from the Henequen Zone” with Shannan Mattiace.
