Polanyi 1992[1944]). 3 Theorising competition regulation Markets are not natural facts that represent some sort of God-given order that existed prior to and despite of various extra-economic interferences. On the contrary, markets are social constructs that only exist because of the existence of extra-economic spheres such as education, nature, security, the family and the interventions by legal-regulatory and political institutions (see also Van Apeldoorn and Horn 2007: 211–15).
