Jackson, W.A. (2003) Social structure in economic theory. Journal of Economic Issues, 37 (3). pp. 727-746. ISSN 0021-3624
[First paragraph] Social structure is a core concept in most social sciences, but it has never quite had this status in economics. Much economic theory, especially the orthodox variety, keeps away from structural methods and makes little or no reference to social structure: the word structure is used only rarely and casually, so that its sense remains unclear. This puts economics out of step with other academic disciplines, which are more amenable to structural ideas, and broaches the issue of whether social structure has been unduly neglected in economic theory.
