Sociology of Markets|
|Certificates: Civic Engagement|
This course will introduce students to some of the core theoretical and empirical works on market economies. We will explore (1) the historical and normative foundations of market economies, (2) the questions of how markets work, why they fail, what kinds of social and political institutions they depend upon, (3) the difference between sociological and economic theories of markets, (4) the role of governments, corporations, workers, consumers, epistemic communities, and international forces in the workings of markets, and (5) the different ways in which advanced nations organize the relationship between markets, states, and societies.
