Handbook of Research on Nonprofit Economics and Management 2010 by Bruce A. Seaman (Editor), Dennis R. Young
Nonprofit organizations are arguably the fastest growing and most dynamic part of modern market economies in democratic countries. This book explores the frontiers of knowledge at the intersection of economics and the management of nonprofit organizations. The authors review the role, structure and behavior of private, nonprofit organizations as economic entities and their participation in markets and systems of public service delivery, assess the implications of this knowledge for the efficient management of nonprofit organizations and the formulation of effective public policy, and identify cutting edge questions for future research. Chapters address five broad categories of scholarship: development and management of the diverse economic resources supporting nonprofit organizations; market behavior of nonprofits; strategic economic decision making; evaluation and performance of nonprofit organizations; and, impacts and implications of public policies affecting nonprofit organizations. Topics include income diversification and crowd-out among income sources, paid and volunteer labor markets, competition and collaboration among nonprofit and for-profits, pricing and diversification of nonprofit products and services, performance measurement and regulation, contracting, franchising and federation practices, and government taxation and funding. The book will help nonprofit scholars identify new areas of productive research, help practicing managers understand the underlying economics of their decision making, and offer teachers and students a concise and penetrating view of key economic dimensions to managing nonprofit organizations.
