Williamson, finding motivation in the works of Commons [1934] and Coase, among others, founded "transaction cost" economics [Williamson, 1971, 1975, 1979, 1985] in which the need for bilateral incentives is a central feature. The major tenets of transaction cost economics suggest that transactions can be defined by "(1) the frequency with which they recur, (2) the degree and type of uncertainty to which they are subject, and (3) the condition of asset specificity" (Williamson, 1988, p.

Thus, a very specific asset is peculiar to a transaction and has no value in other transactions, while an unspecific asset can be used in many different transactions without loss of value. Williamson suggests that asset specificity leads to vertical integration of transactions, that is, to firm-based rather than market-based exchange. For example, suppose that there are two firms, a supplier and a manufacturer.
