This applies at the level of defining what things are, but it also applies at the level of how life should be lived—against the context that people need to learn how to best adapt to their circumstances, and that such learning needs to be passed on. So, for instance, under subsistence agriculture with crops like rice, it becomes a cultural response to be able to cooperate, and perhaps to calculate the value of such cooperation for reciprocal exchange.

The tensions between personalistic control and professional managerial concerns are often very high, and a great deal of the world’s business is conducted as a resolution between these two forces. The significance of the limited liability formula for incorporating a company, dating as it does from the early nineteenth century in Britain, is that it vastly increased the ease with which investment could be made, accounted for, and safely kept on behalf of a large body of people.
