Seine Argumentation basiert dabei auf dem sozioökonomischen Evolutionsmodell von Nelson/Winter (1982), das er durch ein kreativ kognitives Modell von Friedrich A. von Hayek erweitert, um dem Erkenntnisanspruch der evolutorischen Ökonomik gerecht zu werden. Durch die Ergänzung des evolutionstheoretischen Gedankenguts um options- und wettbewerbstheoretische Überlegungen wird deutlich, dass sich der am Markt beobachtbare Wandel von Börsen im Zuge einer "Koevolution der Technologie und der establishment Börse" vollzieht, die durch den Wettbewerb im Börsensegment bedingt ist.
