Dr. Peter Klein Explains the Importance of Being Transaction Cost Savvy in Mises Institute "Economics for Entrepreneurs" Podcast
Hunter Hastings and Peter Klein emphasize profitable value creation as the role of the entrepreneur. Managing costs can contribute to profitability — but there are some costs that are not easy to calculate and not even that easy to identify in some cases. They are not captured by traditional cost accounting. Economists call them transaction costs. They are the costs of acquiring, assembling, monitoring and managing and, in some cases, discarding or re-purposing the resources and assets your firm utilizes to produce output. They are not production costs per se; they are not value creation costs. They’re administrative and managerial costs.

Peter Klein Pens Mises Institute Blog: The (Empirical) Science Isn't Settled
"Because Science!" has become a popular refrain. I'm not just talking about climate studies. Headline writers love to say this. Apparently "Science" recently proved that we should continue to put two spaces after a period, as we did in the old fixed-width typewriting days.* (No word yet on whether it is OK to put pineapple on pizza.) This kind of language is meant to be a conversation-stopper. If a scientific study — i.e., a laboratory experiment or a robust statistical analysis of secondary data — has proven something, it must be accepted as fact.

Peter Klein pens SSRN paper with Nicolai Foss: Entrepreneurial Opportunities: Who Needs Them?
ABSTRACT: Debate in management research on the status of the opportunity construct is now more than a decade old. We argue that the debate has led to little additional insight in entrepreneurship and we develop the case for abandoning the construct altogether. Uncertainty is central to entrepreneurship and innovation yet absent from opportunity-based approaches. We offer instead a "judgment-based view" of entrepreneurship which revolves around the nexus of resource heterogeneity and uncertainty and is operationalized in the "Beliefs-Actions-Results" (BAR) framework.

Peter Klein pens SSRN paper with Nicolai Foss: Stakeholders and Corproate Social Responsibility: An Ownership Perspective
Abstract: We argue that the stakeholder and CSR literatures can benefit from more systematic thinking about ownership. We discuss general notions of ownership in economics and law and the entrepreneurial notion of ownership we have developed in prior work. On this basis, we argue that stakeholder theory needs to deal more systematically with ownership as an economic function that can be exercised with greater or lesser ability, may be complementary to other economic functions, and works better when assigned to homogeneous groups. Some stakeholder groups are likely to lack what we call "ownership competence," even if they have made relationship-specific investments, in part because of diverse interests. We also discuss CSR from the perspective of ownership and support Friedman's original position, but with a twist. The point of Fried-man's paper is not that firms "should" maximize profits, but that managerial pursuit of "socially responsible" activities in a discretionary way imposes costs on owners. We suggest this problem is exacerbated with entrepreneurial managers who can devise new ways to disguise self-interested actions as CSR initiatives.
