Traditionally, the role of the state in the economy was rationalized on the putative existence of pervasive market failure which was, in part, determined by the presence of monopolistic or oligopolistic markets (Stern et al. 2005). For example, new trade theory (Krugman 1990), which invoked the need for strategic policies to improve domestic trade performance (Krugman 1986), is based on monopolistic or oligopolistic firms. On the other hand, authors who supported a minimal role for state involvement proposed laissez faire to eliminate market failure, thereby undercutting a key rationale for state intervention (Bhagwati 1999).

Were this generally the case across sectors, it would be difficult to account for the prevalence of multinational enterprises. 1 excludes technical change. This alone renders it non-credible. One is asked to believe that competition results from a process in which the owners of capital consider different scales of operation and choose among them, without assessing the impact of technical change on the possible choices. The exclusion of technical change from the analysis is not accidental. Were it included, outcomes would be indeterminate, carried to a far more complex level of asymmetric information and uncertainty.
