Even these institutionalisms have not a fruitful dialogue with TCP nowadays. While transactional analysis had been applied to economic and organizational interactions by a relevant tradition of literature, the approach of TCP focuses on political transactions and he considers that “public policy is a sometimes explicit, sometimes implicit agreement (or transaction) among policy makers” (Spiller and 16 G. C. Arias Tommasi 2007, p. 3). In this sense, we should point out the distinction between TCP and politics of transaction costs: TCP is an analysis of diverse political processes based on the existence of positive transaction costs and the governance solutions that actors come up with in order to deal with them, whereas politics of transaction costs in its original sense would be a direct application of economic policy that takes into account the effects of positive transaction costs.

This happens especially when one of the parties is a multiple subject; furthermore, many political contracts are neither explicit nor formal and rest on verbal and even tacit agreements. Moreover, political transactions affect many agents due to the wide presence of spillover effects that enable interpretation of interaction between political agents in terms of a “common agency” relationship with multiple principals (Dixit 1996).
