DLSU RP 1998-02: Toward a Microeconomic Theory of Market Order: Trust Formation and Optimal Intervention in Closed Communities

This research aims to contribute to the burgeoning literature that bridges interdisciplinary gaps between mainstream economics and sociology. The specific area investigated is the phenomenon of market order, i.e., the willingness of economic agents to cooperate in fulfilling contracts, preserving public goods, etc. and to resist the temptation of opportunism. In traditional economic analysis, an assumption such as perfect information renders any discussion of opportunism irrelevant, even if all other social sciences regard such behavior as a fact of life. It is hoped that social behaviors such as opportunism and trust formation may be, in fact, modeled using analytical constructs which economists may find useful in making these concepts more tractable.
