English summary: It is Oliver E. Williamson's theory that people behave rationally to a limited extent only and tend to act in their own interests. He shows how post-contractual problems can arise within the framework of relationship-specific dealings, which are subject to a great deal of environmental uncertainty and require specific investments. In order to cope with these problems, capitalist economic systems provide numerous institutions and coordination mechanisms whose efficiency is examined.Williamson studies economic transactions from an economic, legal and organizational perspective. He differentiates between the individual frequency. In doing so, he assigns the most efficient, i.e. the most cost-effective form of coordination to each type of transaction. The structuring, the monitoring of corporations and issues in antitrust law) as well as highly significant empirical evidence attest to its practical importance. German description: Oliver E. Williamson geht von der Annahme aus, dass Menschen sich nur in begrenztem Masse rational verhalten und dazu neigen, im Eigeninteresse zu handeln. Er zeigt, wie es im Rahmen von Leistungsbeziehungen, die einer hohen Umweltunsicherheit unterliegen und spezifische Investitionen erfordern, zu nachvertraglichen Problemen kommt. Kapitalistische Wirtschaftssysteme stellen fur die Bewaltigung dieser Probleme zahlreiche Institutionen bzw. Koordinationsmechanismen zur Verfugung, die auf ihre Effizienz untersucht werden.Wirtschaftliche Leistungsbeziehungen (Transaktionen) werden aus okonomischer, rechtlicher und organisatorischer Sicht untersucht. Die einzelnen Transaktionen werden nach den Kriterien Spezifitat, Unsicherheit, Komplexitat und Haufigkeit unterschieden. Jedem Transaktionstyp wird dabei die effizienteste, d.h. kostengunstigste Koordinationsform zugeordnet. Den hohen praktischen Stellenwert dieser Vorgehensweise beweisen die zahlreichen Anwendungsmoglichkeiten (Vertikale Integration, Unternehmensstrukturierung, Kontrolle in Aktiengesellschaften und kartellrechtliche Fragestellungen) sowie hochsignifikante empirische Befunde.Die deutsche Ubersetzung der erfolgreichen amerikanischen Originalausgabe wendet sich sowohl an Wissenschaftler als auch an Praktiker, die an einer Integration von okonomischen, rechtlichen und organisatorischen Fragestellungen interessiert sind.
