What do other organizational researchers and economists know about nonprofit organizations and voluntary associations vs. forprofit organizations?

CGAPers and ARNOVAns might be interested in learning what other organizational researchers and economists know (or don’t know) about nonprofit organizations and voluntary associations. Is our research reaching other scholars?

Inspired by an economist’s query, the orgtheory blog has had a series of posts about the nonprofit vs. for-profit organization distinction, with some spirited discussion in the comments. Click here, here, and here to read the posts and comments. In addition, orgtheory blogger Brayden King has posted a review of Politics and Partnerships: The Role of Voluntary Associations in America’s Political Past and Present (2011, UChicago Press). Click here for the official link to this book, which is edited by sociologists Elisabeth Clemens and Doug Guthrie.
