Published here are the three major papers presented at a seminar on economics of firm growth. The seminar, sponsored by the Great Plains Technical Research Committee No. 2, became international with the attendance of Prof. Ulf Renborg from the Agricultural College of Sweden, Uppsala. Prof. Renborg, who has important accomplishments in the subject of firm growth, was able to accept the Committee’s invitation. He contributed a major paper and led the post-seminar critique.
Purpose of the seminar was to explore. After 5 years of fruitful research, the regional project has been recently revised around the dynamic concept of firm growth. Committee members would soon be developing their contributing projects. We needed to give structure to the problem of firm growth and to explore the more urgent and more promising questions for research.
