Summary

Ekonomie hlavního proudu se zabývá především působením „tvrdých“ faktorů na ekonomický rozvoj. S tímto aparátem se jen s obtížemi vyrovnává s objasněním takových jevů, jako jsou např. disparity v rozvoji států a menších územních celků. Institucionální ekonomie se snaží do zkoumání rozvoje zařadit i takové faktory, jako jsou právní řád, kultura v nejširším pojetí, tradice, historická zkušenost a další. Z tohoto přístupu vyplývá, že institucionální ekonomie se ve svých pracovních postupech silně dotýká i dalších vědních disciplín jako je právo, psychologie, historie, politologie a dalších. Její přístup pomáhá často vysvětlit jevy, které jsou ekonomii hlavního proudu nepostižitelné
