2008 SASE Annual Meeting "Economic Flexibility and Social Stability in the Age of Globalization"
The theme of the SASE 2008 meeting is suggested by Karl Polanyis The Great Transformation. Polanyi interprets the history of industrial society in the 19th and 20th centuries in terms of a pendulum-like "double movement." One side of that movement is toward free and flexible markets that underpin, and in some sense foster, the material and technological gains associated with the Industrial Revolution. The other side is a reaction to the disruption that these markets impose on peoples lives, an attempt to preserve the social relations through which people understand themselves and find meaning in their lives.
