Analysing agricultural land markets as organisations: An empirical study in Poland
Analysing markets as organisations governed by a network of relational contracts that establish rules for market participants increases our understanding of exchange processes. On the basis of three land market case studies in Poland, it is shown that market rules are shaped by the identity as well as constellation of actors and are designed to serve the common objectives of the members of the organisation "market" by decreasing transaction costs and protecting group interests.
