This paper aims to study the hypotheses of variable frame theory and their implications on the representation of the economic agent by underlining: 1) the fact that team reasoning is based on the internalization of the decision-making process; and 2) the fact that taking into account the subjective representations of these problems implies redefining the identity of the economic agent, i.e., his or her agency.
