Rather than claim (as Klein does) that Hayek focused on concatenate coordination (in which individual actions must fit together in such a way to yield a pleasing outcome to a superindividual observer), whereas Schelling focused on mutual coordination (in which an individual must adjust his action in light of what others are expected to do), instead I would say the critical distinction between the two camps is this: Hayek focused on the tremendous difficulties in achieving equilibrium at all, whereas Schelling (and many modern neoclassicals) assume away this real-world problem and instead focus on choosing from among possible equilibria in stylized games that are much simpler than the actual economy.
