Who is Elinor Ostrom?
Elinor Ostrom was an American political economist whose work was associated with the New Institutional Economics and the resurgence of political economy.
In 2009, she was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for her “analysis of economic governance, especially the commons”, which she shared with Oliver E. Williamson. To date, she remains the first of only two women to win the Nobel Prize in Economics, the other being Esther Duflo.
Tagion has based much of its governing on the principles for a common that Elinor Orstrom developed.
