Institutional Economics
 
1. What is institutional economics?
Institutional economics is a branch of economics which is used to have a clear perception about the creation as well as role of institutions in shaping economic behavior. It is used to study the role of institutions as well as markets due to the complex relationships which take place between the different institutions like firms, individuals, states etc. It formed a vital aspect of American economic thinking in the early 20th century. Economists like Thorstein Veblen as well John. R.Commons was its major proponents of this school of thought.
2. Traditional institutionalism
Traditional institutionalism doesn't regard the concept that institutions are influenced by tastes, technology and their immediate environment. Tastes, along with changes in the habits, trends and expectations not only determine the functioning of these institutions but are shaped and influenced  by them. The views of people who work in these institutions are to a great extent shaped by their surroundings. Traditional institutions emphasize on the legal foundations of the economy as well as the evolutionary process through which institution gets established and changes over a period of time. John R.Commons laid more stress on the legal foundations of a economy as compared to others. Traditional economic issues are used to form an opinion which takes into account the influence social as well as cultural factors in the economic process.
3. New institutional economics
New institutional economics attempts to explain the various problems which crop up within the economy from an angle which takes into account the legal as well as social norms.

So, institutional analysis made from these types of assignments is needed to enhance the efficiency of law, economics as well as institutions. Within its ambit, new institutional economics

includes property rights, human assets as well as organizational arrangements. Institutions are responsible for setting up the rules and regulations. Companies on the other hand are groups of people who coordinate with one another in order to perform against other organizations.
4. Criticisms
Economists who are critical of this school of thought have stated that the term 'institution' forms a core aspect of all branches of social sciences, which makes it quite meaningless to use in the context of economics. This has led to lengthy, inconclusive disputes between scholars who support institutionalism and others who don't. As a result, the confusion surrounding the major ideas of these theories has become even more confounded.
