The Different Categories of Goods and Services and their Systems of Governance

An excerpt from Essai sur l’Oeconomie, by Pïerre Calame

par Pierre Calame

The purpose of oeconomy is to create actors, institutional arrangements, processes, and rules. But are these actors, arrangements, processes, and rules the same for all goods and services, or do they vary according to their nature? Are goods and services equivalent from the standpoint of personal and social

responsibility, as well as from the standpoint of equity?

“To ask these questions is to have already answered them: no, goods and services differ from one another according to each of these criteria.”
