Empirical inquiries carried out in keeping with the ecological theory of organizations, and concerning large organization superiority, have produced conflicting results. In general, it is not known how stability or instability factors may have an effect (whatever it may be) on the stability or instability of organizations and their populations. A better empirical confirmation has received the assumption, according to which, once a change has started, organizations tend to maintain their current behaviors and orientations.

Business interests may be oriented toward the opening of the market as long as there is an opportunity for profitable exchanges. A consensual action would follow, and the market community would then be strengthened. But the same interests may instead attempt to close the market in order to reap a monopolistic or oligopolistic profit at the expense not only of their competitors but the consumers as well. In this case, the rational associations that may be constituted for the purpose of exploiting the market closure, may be endowed with organizations of their own in charge of enforcing the business partners’ internal agreements (Weber 1956: 44–5, 382–5; 1968: 85, 635–40; 1973: 450–51, 453, 458, 461–3; 1984: 370–71).

The existence of business communities including small firms, with relations based on trust not embedded in relatively impermeable environments, is however consistent with a prediction—keeping to this theory—of a better economic performance of the “English” model, other conditions being equal.
