SWEDBERG, Richard. Economic sociology: today and tomorrow. Tempo Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.16, n.2, pp.7-34. ISSN 0103-2070.

This article ponders over the contemporary rebirth of economic sociology, attempting to distinguish its American and European traits, emphasizing the works and conceptual models of its respective pioneers (Granovetter, "embedding" and networks; Bourdieu, habitus, field, interest and capital), highlighting the new investigation fronts (markets, firms, finance, law and stratification) and, simultaneously, stressing this specialty's connections to the classical agenda inaugurated by Marx, Weber, Schumpeter and others.

Keywords : Economic sociology; "Economy social construction"; "Embedding"; Network theory; Markets; Comparative studies.
