Nobel Elinor: Transcending Markets, Bureaucracy, Covenants, and Business Elites


  • Terry Nichols Clark

    () (University of Chicago)


Elinor Ostrom has innovated by transcending the common quasi-determinisms of Markets, Bureaucracy, Covenants, and Business Elites. She has joined elements of all these to illuminate dark corners for most theories, like informal negotiation, intergovernmental cooperation, restructuring incentives, and forming new governance coalitions among voluntary participants, public, private, and non-profit. Her analytical insights link to personal lifestyle in ways that have been inspirational to many globally.
