This article presents an institutional, political economy paradigm in marketing as a complement to the presently prevailing microeconomic/marketing management concept. The latter framework provides insufficient tools for analyzing exchange structures and processes within and between organizations. Political economy is proposed as a more appropriate paradigm, as it focuses on authority and control patterns, conflict and conflict management procedures, and external and internal determinants of institutional change.
