90 Kreps (1990, p116) 91 See in this regard the general explanation for constraining own actions of Gilboa (2010, p112); in effect, the firm constraints some of its options for action to open up new ones. 92 Hahn (2004); Prakash (1999) 25 Thus, to engage in self-regulation is a question of comparative costs between maintaining a certain degree of legitimacy and losing it. Ceteris paribus, this study uses the following idea as a premise: The less legitimate an organization is considered to be, the higher the costs it incurs in transacting on a particular market.

87 Extending this definition to a more liberal understanding of transaction cost, one may speak of (external) transaction costs as those which a firm incurs from engaging in transactions with stakeholders. 88 Stakeholders that provide a necessary resource to a firm are potentially in the position to increase the transaction costs of transferring this resource, or in some instances they may even withdraw it completely. For the affected firm it may consequently become expensive to produce and sell – in some cases even prohibitively so – when violating certain moral demands and standards.

Each man is locked into a system that compels him to increase his herd without limit – in a world that is limited. 118 Problems of industry collective action can be described in a similar fashion, where the individually maximizing firm’s behavior leads to a collectively undesirable result.  114 Cornes and Sandler (1986/1996, p8-9) 115 In other words, when the transaction cost modification produced by the regime cannot be withheld from nonmembers, and hence from firms that do not comply with its respective prescriptions, the benefit is nonexcludable.
