Abstract

La Theory of Monopolitic Competition di Edwin Chamberlin è spesso descritta come un’opera che contiene alcune importanti tracce di influenza istituzionalista. Questa circostanza è confermata dai numerosi riferimenti da parte dello stesso Chamberlin, all’opera di J. M. Clark, Veblen ed altre importanti figure istituzionaliste. Lo scopo di questo paper è quello di analizzare la reazione istituzionalista alla pubblicazione della Theory of Monopolistic Competition. Ciò che emerge è che i maggiori esponenti istituzionalisti reagirono in maniera articolata e tutt’altro che acritica, mostrando particolare insoddisfazione per l’opera di Chamberlin tanto sul piano teorico che metodologico. Il paper è organizzato come segue. La prima sezione presenta le principali implicazioni teoriche contenute nella Theory of Monopolistic Competition. La seconda sezione analizza gli aspetti generali della reazione istituzionalista. La terza e quarta sezione affrontano gli aspetti più propriamente teorici della critica istituzionalista a Chamberlin. L’ultima sezione presenta alcune conclusioni di sintesi.
