Comparative institutional advantage: an obituary
Journal of Institutional Economics, 2019, vol. 15, issue 4, 569-578
The article traces the remains of the theory of â€œcomparative institutional advantageâ€ , which was crucial during the early development of the â€œvarieties of capitalismâ€ approach to economics but fell into oblivion quickly afterwards. It follows the discussions of the concept over time and works out possible reasons â€“ theoretical, methodological, and discursive â€“ for the theory's decay. In conclusion, many arguments of the theory seem outdated today but it is a great witness to the zeitgeist of comparative political economy and institutional theory of the millennium.
