Rethinking systemic change: economic evolution and institutions

In this work, we question the utility of the concept of systemic change in market systems development as it is currently used and suggest that we need a rethink. Systems continuously change and evolve, also without external development actors. The aim of development must be to enhance the evolutionary process in an economy and create access to this process for all levels of the society, both politically and economically. Instead of systemic change, development actors need to go back to a fundamental understanding of economic change that is in line with the evolutionary nature of that change.
