Here it is shown how the two can be combined in a single, more general theorem that explains the emergence of rule-based be­ havior and institutions, both private (companies, clubs, households) and public (government), as an attempt to overcome transaction costs and uncertainty. This generalized Coase theorem is nothing but a continuation of the evolutionary search for more adaptive and flexible complex survival systems. , and Howitt, P. ( 1 993).

In this view, transaction costs represent resource losses that are due to lack of information and to uncertainty. They are induced by cognitive differentiation 14 Bertin Martens or specialization between individuals. As such, transaction costs are a subset of information costs. The latter refer to the opportunity cost of any type of information; the former refer only to the information input required for achiev­ ing a transaction between two individuals with different knowledge sets. Whereas information costs are costs incurred to reduce general uncertainty, transaction costs are incurred to reduce uncertainties concerning interindivid­ ual transactions.
