This note is designed to explain basic concepts of the economic theory of the firm to students who have no background in economics. It does not purport to cover all or even most of the scholarship in the field, nor does it aim to provide new insights into the theory of the firm. I find this note to be a useful teaching tool in introductory organizational law courses. The note is copied from: Amitai Aviram, Unincorporated Business Entities: Course Material.
