However, institutionalists have yet to include technology and technological change explicitly into their formulation. The arguments for a marriage I think are strong. Below I map out what such a marriage might look like. Routines as a unifying concept I begin by noting the essential function that the notion of a ‘routine’, or an equivalent concept, plays in modern economic evolutionary theory.

In my view, the advance of physical technologies continues to play the lead role in the process of economic growth. In the example of the rise of mass production, social technologies enter the story in terms of how they enable physical technologies to be implemented. In the case of the rise of the industrial R&D laboratory, new social technologies are needed to support activities that create new physical technologies. Perhaps a useful way of looking at this obvious interdependence is to posit, or recognize, that physical and social technologies co-evolve.
