The Coasian Nature of the Firm merges neoclassical

and institutional economics approaches, by applying the

marginal analysis to decision-making processes of the company,

with consequences on their structure and size.

This paper aims at drawing the evolution of economic theory

from perfect competition model to the Coasian Nature of the

Firm, in order to explain the main influences that shaped one of

the Transaction Cost Economics underpinnings.
