28 The Problem with Collective Commitment Given the assumptions of maximization, bounded rationality, and opportunism, collective commitments of firms are subject to strategic behavior, which may compromise the effectiveness of such arrangements as a means to assure the adherence to ethical standards in a particular industry. Generally, one can describe strategic behavior by the assumptions about actors that they (1) make choices in anticipation of the likely choices and reactions of others, (2) are concerned about the consequences of their actions, (3) order their preferences in a broadly consistent fashion, so that they are stable across time and issues, and (4) select means that they believe will achieve better rather than worse anticipated consequences in terms of individually ordered preferences.

74 Williamson (1996, p378)  20 Hypothetical contracts may hence exist where no explicit contracts exist, as is often the case in stakeholder relations. 75 Since not all possible states of the future can be anticipated, actors in hypothetical contracts may have to give a commitment to certain values, ideals, or standards (guiding values) that provide a certain assurance to stakeholders that certain paths of action are followed, even though this assurance is not in the form of a formal and explicit contract.

In trade policy, for example, it is meaningful to speak on a broad level - of strategies of "free" versus "restricted" international trade without worrying about the myriad of nuances such as differential treatment of steel versus textiles, or the use of tariff versus nontariff barriers. Similarly, strategies of reducing military spending, of increasing international tensions, or of promoting environmental protection are each meaningful without supposing that someone has compiled an exact listing of how to pursue that policy under every conceivable contingency.
