This paper discusses a meta-theoretical framework that aims to explain all forms of economic coordination using a computational complexity approach. Using a formal model inspired by Generative Grammar Theory, it establishes a demarca-tion criterion between markets and hierarchies (including hybrid forms). The hy-pothesized equivalence between economic coordination structures and linguistic structures makes it possible to explore any sequence of decision-making event outcomes, whether individual actions or social interactions, for patterns of causal relations in a way analogous to sentences in a language. This research concludes that patterns of decision-making events are categories of processes, and that eco-nomic coordination in organizational structures achieve a complexity level that is not possible in free market structures.
