Karl Polanyi and social justice

WEA Pedagogy Blog

In the introductory note to the book Trade and Market, Polanyi invites the readers to re-examine the notion of the “economy” since many people think that the only way of organizing the livelihoods of men is the market economy. In his own words:

‘What is to be done, though, when it appears that some economies have operated on altogether different principles, showing a widespread use of money, and far-flung trading activities, yet no evidence of markets or gain made on buying or selling? It is then that we must re-examine our notions of the economy.’ (Polanyi et al, 1957: xvii).

In order to develop an alternative notion of the “economy”, Polanyi proposed a new theoretical approach to explain the place and role of human beings in social and economic systems. He addressed that men value those material goods that serve the end to promote protection and social standing. As a…

Business and Management INK

[We’re pleased to welcome authors Benjamin D. McLarty, James M. Vardaman, and Tim Barnett of Mississippi State University. They recently published an article in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice entitled “Congruence in Exchange: The Influence of Supervisors on Employee Performance in Family Firms,” which is currently free to read for a limited time. Below, they briefly describe the motivation and impact of their research.]

Much of the research on family firms takes place at the firm-level. A trove of research has developed suggesting that family firms place importance on specific non-economic goals labeled socio-emotional wealth (SEW), and that preserving this SEW drives many strategic decisions in family firms. We were motivated to pursue this research because although we knew SEW’s role in how family firms behave, we wanted to know how it influences the ways people in family firms behaved. Specifically, how the importance supervisors placed SEW could impact…

Business and Management INK

[We’re pleased to welcome authors B. Sebastian Reiche, Yih-teen Lee of IESE Business School, and David G. Allen of Texas Christian University and University of Warwick. They recently published an article in the Journal of Management’s latest Special Issue on Multinational Enterprise entitled “Actors, Structure, and Processes: A Review and Conceptualization of Global Work Integrating IB and HRM Research,” which is currently free to read for a limited time.

We set out to organize the special issue and write this introductory article because the concept of global work remained insufficiently understood, despite important advances in the literature. This was surprising to us given an ever-increasing number of individuals are engaged in different forms of global work. More surprising still was that the International Business (IB) and Human Resource Management (HRM) literatures, which serve as the focal domains to study global work phenomena, have…
