We now turn to the analysis of decision making in superorganizations. The superorganizations that we will study in this section consist of a central organization coordinating one or more of their member firms' activities (output, prices, quality, wages, working conditions). At one extreme, they may exercise hierarchic power over these constituents; at the other, they may act as an association in no way limiting their autonomy, except insofar as members may have bound themselves to certain actions or policies.
