Organisationen reagieren – anders als es die klassische Marktforschung suggeriert – nicht auf objektiv gegebene Umweltbedingungen, sondern sie erfinden, erschaffen und konstruieren sich ihre Wirklichkeit selbst. Denn aus den verwirrenden, chaotischen und irritierenden Eindrücken ziehen Organisationen jene Informationen, mit denen sie sich ein Bild von ihrem Umfeld machen können, das es ihnen erlaubt, sich einigermaßen sicher in dieser Umwelt bewegen zu können.

Hausmann (2001) argues, for instance, that development outcomes may be shaped by geography, as most poor countries happen to be either landlocked, or located in the tropics, or both, a conclusion that does not fully explain historic shifts in the development ranking of countries. While strides have been made in attempts to identify sources of growth beyond asset accumulation, such as a recent focus on institutions and economic geography, the overarching message in all these avenues of inquiry is that we still do not know too much about the variables that trigger and sustain development.
