Abstract: "Institutional arrangements can be extensive in form. They include the particular options available, the sequencing of those options, the information provided, and the relative rewards and punishments assigned to different sequences of the actions. All these can affect the pattern of outcome achieved. The particular structure of the physical environment involved also has a major impact on the structure of institutional arrangement and its results. Thus, a set of rules used in one physical environment may have vastly different consequences if used in a different physical environment."
