This chapter examines the more recent history of business associations' political context, organization, and orientations. Against the background of findings from earlier studies, the chapter presents a new analysis of the organizational features and major orientations of the contemporary association population. They are, overall, well established, multifunctional—and weakly organized. The chapter argues that these features mean they are, first and foremost, cultural producers for economic action.

Keywords:   organizational structure, orientation, business associations, cultural production, economic action, association population
