Economic sociology extends the sociological approach to the study of economic life. The goal is to understand the relationship between social dynamics and economic action. We explore how individuals find jobs; rely on networks to share knowledge and information; acquire and utilize cultural, social and political capital; why individual actors cooperate with strangers; and the question of rational action in economic life. At the macro-level, the course addresses the question of why and how institutions enable, motivate and guide economic action; the social dynamics of institutional change; and explore the role of norms and networks in the capitalism of the United States and China.
