Abstract

Interest in how institutional factors shape economic development has escalated
substantially in recent years. Economists and other social theorists have
recognized that the design of effective policy, at both the national and firm
levels, requires an understanding of the institutional context within which
policies will be implemented, and of the interaction of organizational forms
with that context. Leading economists now widely accept that 'institutions do
matter' (Williamson, 2000). As Williamson acknowledges, however, agreement
essentially terminates at that point.
