Top 10 Most-read Economic Sociology and Political Economy Posts of 2017

As 2017 (already) comes to an end, I rounded up the top 10 most-read posts of the year on Economic Sociology and Political Economy community blog. Besides being interesting, enlightening and thought-provoking, it turned out that these posts reflect to a large extent the complex realities of political economies throughout the world as well as intellectual challenges of those studying them in 2017.
The ES/PE community proudly counts almost 50,000 members, followers, and readers from about 130 countries — researchers, students, practitioners, and activists, who constantly generate more than 150,000 monthly page views on our sites and via social media. As we all conclude this year and mull over the next one, what can be said with certainty is that economic sociology and political economy perspectives and insights will be essentially needed to keep on reflecting, debunking, and realizing. More work ahead…
