CORI - Contracts data base

Posted on 26 January 2009


Often, in discussion with colleagues in conferences, comes the issue of available data concerning contractual choices made by economic actors. It appears surprisingly that few people are aware of the initiative of the CORI (Contracting and Organizations Research Institute), initiated by Ronald H. Coase and Kenneth Lehn by the mid 90's. The CORI K-Base now includes almost 700,000 contracts, most obtained from corporate disclosure filings. More than 440, 000 of them are available on line. The contracts are accessible via full-text and defined category search queries. Everything is on the CORI web page.
