Can institutions orient the emergence of new needs and, through their action, address the economic system to their satisfaction? In order to answering this question, the essay proposes a theoretical framework grounded on two elements: the notion of institutions as different types of entities organised around different systems of rules, and the notion of needs as the expression of awareness of what people consider important to build new life plans. The emergence of such an awareness is linked to knowledge-generating process-es. The resulting policy implications focus on the idea that social policies should follow two complementary directions: contributing to build the minimum conditions to design life plans and widening the possibilities of active participation in knowledge-generating processes.

Abstract

Can institutions orient the emergence of new needs and, through their action, address the economic system to their satisfaction? In order to answering this question, the essay proposes a theoretical framework grounded on two elements: the notion of institutions as different types of entities organised around different systems of rules, and the notion of needs as the expression of awareness of what people consider important to build new life plans. The emergence of such an awareness is linked to knowledge-generating process-es. The resulting policy implications focus on the idea that social policies should follow two complementary directions: contributing to build the minimum conditions to design life plans and widening the possibilities of active participation in knowledge-generating processes.
