3. Who are the primary agents expected to respond to this policy in a helpful way? Will they? Did they?
Social Interaction: What struggles are occurring or will occur about the character of new material structures and their emergent properties? How are these struggles conditioned by contradictions and complementarities among existing structures?
Social–cultural Actions: What struggles are occurring or will occur about the character of new cultural emergent structures and properties? How are these struggles conditioned by contradictions and complementarities among existing structures?
Social Interaction, Socio–cultural Interaction and new People’s Emergent Properties: What changes are occurring in the composition of corporate agents? Are new alliances or new organizations emerging? How are these changes conditioned by both material and cultural structures? How do they proceed to impact and change material and cultural structures?
Division into phases: What would be a helpful configuration of emergent structures to identify as the “initial conditions?” What are the dates of this configuration? What subsequent configurations are important as distinctive stages in the history of this policy arena? What would be a helpful configuration of emergent structures and properties to identify as the “the next outcome?” What are the dates of this configuration?
