Efficiency perspective refers to the continuation of the same basic structure of intermediation but accentuated and hastened through elimination of several mediatory links. We argue contrarily from the Austrian perspective that Ecom transforms the intermediation structure in order to afford higher coordination, higher capital and increased rate of profit—and all this by virtue of a new market microstructure of intermediation. Ecom is an innovation in trade and linkages in an economy and we would argue that it substitutes the previous intermediary-based value chain by a new coordination across several value chains and specifically along the scope dimension (North, 1989).

However, mediation in the market is only limitedly technological. Mediation refers more to the market microstructure. Moreover, Ecom can affect efficiency through means other than dis-intermediation. In contrast, we argue that efficiency fails to increase rate of profit or the pace and spread of innovations. For us, intermediation refers to not just a certain value chain, such as a typical SIC industrial segment. Contrarily, intermediation goes beyond a market segment to the depth of market microstructure (O’Hara, 1997) to provide for coordination (Richardson, 1960, 1972, 1998) in two modes; first, amongst the competitors (including potential competitors and complementors), and second, between the producer and its consumers.
