Disagreement over options is found in political cleavages. I have suggested elsewhere (Donnelly 2000) that two cleavages based on political ideas play a great role in shaping the kind of relationship that prevails between state and business in political economies. These cleavages are often tied to historical experience and the lessons following from them (Hix and Lord 1999, 27).
