Political organizations are political parties, legislatures, regulatory bodies; educational organizations are universities, schools, vocational training centers. The immediate objective of organizations may be profit maximizing (for firms) or improving reelection prospects (for political parties); but the ultimate objective is survival because all organizations live in a world of scarcity and hence competition. 2. New or altered opportunities may be perceived to be a result of exogenous changes in the external environment which alter relative prices to organizations, or a consequence of endogenous competition among the organizations of the polity and the economy.

The concentration on the determination of prices has led to a narrowing of focus which has had as a result the neglect of other aspects of the economic system. Sometimes, indeed, it seems as though economists conceive of their subject as being concerned only with the pricing system and anything outside this is considered as no part of their business. Thus, my old chief and wonderful human being, Lionel Robbins, wrote, in The Nature and Significance of Economic Science, about the “glaring deficiencies” of the old treatment of the theory of production with its discussion of peasant proprietorships and industrial forms: “It suggests that from the point of view of the economist ‘organisation’ is a matter of internal industrial (or agricultural) arrangement—if not internal to the firm, at any rate internal to ‘the’ industry.

Institutional change is typically incremental and is path dependent. This institutional change is occurring in a world of pervasive uncertainty or ambiguity which by definition is one in which one cannot derive a probability distribution of possible outcomes-such as is possible with decision making in the face of risk (in the Knightian definitions). This uncertainty persists because the “human landscape” in which humans are interacting is continually undergoing change—change induced in part by non-human action (for example changes in climate, natural disasters) but primarily by the human actors themselves.
