However, most empirical instances will differ in one way or another. For example, business coordination may be underdeveloped, and/or labour representation may be far from unitary and based on ideological divisions. Under those conditions, strategic interaction may only occur sporadically, and infrequently produces stable institutional arrangements (Molina and Rhodes, this volume). As suggested by Hall and Gingerich (2004), in ‘mid-spectrum’ economies, CME-type strategic complementarities, positive spillovers, and public goods provision are inhibited by power asymmetries, organizational fragmentation, and class conflict, as (for the same reasons) are the complementarities that derive from the less visible market discipline found in LMEs.

This issue goes to the heart of the debates on the neoinstitutionalist approach to political economy: in the first case, actors have internalized the constraints of the institutional framework (and the framework becomes to a large extent constitutive of those very actors), while the second case leaves more room for contingencies. The difference between the two is clear in how they account for change: if institutions are indeed constitutive of actors, then actors permanently reproduce the institutional framework, and change can therefore only occur when it is exogenous and sudden.

The small firm/large firm, sheltered sector/exposed sector divisions that have always been important (and destabilizing) in MMEs such as Italy and Spain are now becoming an increasingly important feature of the CMEs such as Germany as well. While this does not necessarily mean the demise of CME-type institutional complementarities, it does mean that the nature of the coordinated economy has become more contested and its reaffirmation and renegotiation less amenable to consensus-based solutions as ‘insider–outsider’ divisions grow (Hall, this volume; Rueda 2005).
