Dr David Gindis is an Associate Professor at Hertfordshire Business School, where he teaches intermediate microeconomics and political economy. His interdisciplinary research into firms and their institutional environment lies at the intersections of institutional economics, law and economics, organisation studies, corporate governance, business history, business ethics, political philosophy and the history of ideas. He has been particularly interested in the role of corporate personality in the emergence, persistence, governance and evolution of the firm in market economies, and is working on a book project entitled Corporate Personality and the Theory of the Firm (under contract with Edward Elgar). His current research explores the roots of contemporary conceptions of the corporation, the history of law and economics, with a specific focus on Henry Manne, and the extension of the Ostroms' notion of polycentric governance to business corporations and other organisational forms. Dr Gindis is the recipient of the Herbert Simon Young Scholar Prize (European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy, 2008) and the History of Economic Analysis Award (European Society for the History of Economic Thought, 2021). He is a co-founder of the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research (WINIR).
