Using three articles relating to the field of economic sociology, the paper explains the definition of economic sociology and its differences in discipline from the field of economics. The paper uses articles by Nicole Biggart, Charles W. Smith, and Wendy Griswold.

From the Paper:

"Biggart examines the cultural significance of meetings and ceremonies within the organization, which serve to drive the sales force. Such events are cultural marks that motivate the sales force to sell and convince the buyers to buy. Meetings serve to "reinforce the image of the founders as special people are opportunities for articulating the founders' philosophies" (127). During meetings, status differences within the organization are displayed by rewarding high selling sales people and inviting them to sit on stage with the founders. There are "people who are separated and honored, and the rest are reminded of their inferior status" (140). This recognition of status ignites the sales force and directly impacts the market within the DSO."
