About this product
- DescriptionSocial relations are crucial for understanding diverse ecomic actions and a network perspective is central to that explanation. Simple exchanges involving money, labor, and commodities combine into complexly connected systems. Ecomic networks span many levels of analysis, from persons (consumers, employees), to groups (households, workteams), organizations (corporations, interest groups), populations (industries, markets) and the rapidly expanding global ecomic system. David Kke blends network theories from a range of disciplines and empirical studies of domestic and international ecomies to illuminate how ecomic activity is embedded in and constrained by social ties among ecomic actors. Social capital, in the form of connections to others holding valuable resources, is vital for finding a job, buying a car, creating a new industry, or triggering a global financial crisis. In ntechnical terms the author explicates the core network concepts, measures, and analysis methods behind these phemena. The book also includes many striking network diagrams to provide visual insights into complex structural patterns. This accessible book offers an invaluable critique for both undergraduate and graduate students in ecomic sociology and social network analysis courses who seek a better understanding of the multifaceted ecomic webs in which we are all entangled.
