Recent Thoughts

The institutions we create reduce coordination costs by establishing relatively static “divisions,” but on the other hand, they also regularly tolerate coordination and communication that cross those divisions to a certain extent. Our institutions feature mechanisms that allow them to self-correct their divisions, thus preserving the dynamism of institutional evolution. I am thinking about how the logic of this general schema and its implications can be connected to concrete analysis.
