    A Note on Civilizations and Economies2010In: European Journal of Social Theory, ISSN 1368-4310, E-ISSN 1461-7137, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 15-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches the topic of civilizations and economies through a discussion of two key texts that appeared during the first wave of interest among social scientists for the phenomenon of civilization: ‘Note on the Notion of Civilization’ ([1913] 1998) by Emile Durkheim and Marcel Mauss, and ‘Author’s Introduction’ ([1920a] 1930) by Max Weber. Durkheim and Mauss were of the opinion that civilizations have their own, unique form of existence that is very difficult to understand and theorize. Civilizations, they nonetheless suggest, are marked off by symbolic boundaries and consist of elements that are hard for political authorities to control, including money, commerce, techniques and tools. Max Weber’s most important attempt to struggle with the idea of civilization, can be found in his portrait of Western civilization in ‘Author’s Introduction’. Weber, as is well known, suggests in this writing that Western civilization is characterized by a ‘specific and peculiar rationalism’ — and he devotes a large part of the text to a portrait of modern rational capitalism. This type of capitalism, we conclude, is consequently civilizational in nature. Its emergence, as Weber also shows elsewhere, cannot be explained by referring to some special group or nation. The two works by Weber and Durkheim and Mauss, the article concludes, allow us to better understand civilizations as distinct social-cultural configurations and also to approach their economic dimension. Both works emphasize the fact that one needs to use an interdisciplinary as well as a comparative approach to undertake a civilizational as well as a civilizational-economic analysis.

    Die Bedeutung der Weber'schen Kategorien für die Wirtschaftssoziologie2010In: Wirtschaftssoziologie nach Max Weber / [ed] Andrea Maurer, Wiesbaden: VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften , 2010, p. 21-39Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Viele Wirtschaftssoziologen werden der Aussage zustimmen, dass die Weber'schen Kategorien von großer Bedeutung für die gegenwärtige Wirtschaftssoziologie sind. Es ist allgemein bekannt, dass sich sowohl in der Protestantischen Ethik als auch in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft viele sehr nützliche Begriffe finden. Noch allgemeiner gefasst: Max Weber ist als Begründer der Wirtschaftssoziologie anerkannt und viele seiner Kategorien wie etwa „Geist des Kapitalismus“, „rationaler Kapitalismus“ und „Bürokratie“ gehören längst zum Begriffsinstrumentarium nicht nur der Wirtschaftssoziologie, sondern der Soziologie allgemein.

    The Economic Sociologies of Pierre Bourdieu2011In: Cultural Sociology, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 67-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Instead of trying to locate

    the economic sociology of Bourdieu, I argue that his analysis of the economy was developed over such a long time period, is so rich and goes in so many interesting directions, that we are justified in speaking of Bourdieu’s economic sociologies in the plural. While most sociologists know about Bourdieu’s study Distinction (1986) and its analysis of consumption, there is less awareness of the fact that Bourdieu himself, towards the end of his life, said that he had produced three major studies of economic topics. These are: his work in Algeria on ‘the economy of honour and "good faith"’ (1950s and 1960s); his study of credit (Bourdieu et al., 1963); and his study of the economy of single-family houses (Bourdieu et al., 1999). These three studies are presented and discussed in detail, and so is Bourdieu’s attempt to formulate a general program for ‘economic anthropology’ in his article ‘The Economic Field’ (1997), drawing on such concepts as field, habitus and capital. Some critique has been directed at Bourdieu’s analysis of the economy, and this is also discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    On September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy and nearly caused a meltdown of the financial system. This article looks at the situation before Lehman went bankrupt and how this event came to trigger a financial panic during the fall of 2008 and early 2009. Two key ideas inform the analysis. The first is that what triggers financial panics are typically hidden losses. The second is that confidence plays a key role in financial panics and that confidence can be conceptualized as a belief that action can be based on proxy signs, rather than on direct information about the situation itself.

    Capitalist Entrepreneurship: Making Profit through the Unmaking of Economic Orders2009In: Capitalism and Society, ISSN 1932-0213, Vol. 4, no 2 Art. 3, p. 1-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a theoretical paper in which we attempt to present an economic and sociological theory of entrepreneurship. We start from Schumpeter's idea in Theory of Economic Development that the economy can be conceptualized as a combination and innovations as new combinations. Schumpeter also spoke of resistance to entrepreneurship. By linking the ideas of combination and resistance, we are in a position to suggest a theory of capitalist entrepreneurship. An existing combination, we propose, can be understood as a social formation with its own cohesion and resistance – what may be called an economic order. Actors know how to act; and profit is low and even in these orders. Entrepreneurship, in contrast, breaks them up by creating new ways of doing things and, in doing so, produces entrepreneurial profit. This profit inspires imitators until a new order for how to do things has been established; and profit has become low and even once more. Entrepreneurship is defined as the act of creating a new combination that ends one economic order and clears the way for a new one. The implications of this approach for a number of topics related to entrepreneurship are also discussed.
