The potential to minimize as well as to maximize is part of the same institutional package. The optimization model thus allows a unified approach to the problem of institutional choice, combining the “challenge/problem” side and the “opportunity/resource” side of diversity. Obviously, it is difficult to optimize when you have different values, preferences, and perspectives. Total social satisfaction is a bundle of values, and the values are not additive. Moreover, the preferred solutions or institutional arrangements differ.

And there is at least one general optimum point. How does one find out the optimal when in most 32 ins titutional diversity and pol itical e conomy cases there is no Archimedean perspective from outside the social system? , all the fundamental interests involved)? How does one improve the total social satisfaction when the agents are bounded rational actors with imperfect knowledge and subjective preferences? How does one move society in the direction of optima that dominate the current one, even if that optimal point is not the general optimum?

As previously discussed, one way of sketching it is to focus on three dimensions: heterogeneity of capabilities, heterogeneity of preferences, and heterogeneity of beliefs and information (Ostrom and Keohane 1995). ) Such distinctions help us to get a clearer view on the full range of implications heterogeneity has for the way we theorize and design institutional arrangements. Many mixtures of heterogeneity and homogeneity are possible. And these combinations are both building blocks and keys to collective action and institutional order.
