Status has become an increasingly influential concept in the fields of organizational and economic sociology during the past two decades. Research in this area has not only helped explain behavior within and between organizations, but has also contributed to our understanding of status processes more generally. In this review, we point to the contributions of this field in terms of the determinants of status, the effects of status, and the mechanisms by which these effects are produced. We next ...

Introduction Status issues permeate social and organizational life (e.g., Chen et al. 2003, Fiske 2010, Phillips 2005, Podolny 2005, Ridgeway et al. 2009, Peterson and Harvey 2009). As sociologists and anthropologists have long noted, whenever social actors gather, a status hierarchy among these actors emerges, and through that process, some actors are afforded higher esteem and social worth than others (Blau 1964, Emerson 1962, Homans 1961). The impact of these status differences cuts across al...

Although many sociologists are strongly wedded to the idea of “social construction,” the contextual factors that influence the magnitude of construction are rarely considered. This article explores the decoupling of an actor’s status from the actor’s underlying quality and examines the factors that influence the magnitude of decoupling. The authors specifically consider the role of quality uncertainty, diffuse status characteristics, and the self‐fulfilling prophecy. To analyze the impact of eac...

The authors incorporate social status and regional affiliation--two variables of central sociological interest--into an economic analysis of entry and predation. They build on Scott Morton's (1997) examination of entry and predation in the merchant shipping industry and examine whether the social status of an entrant owner impacts on the predation behavior of the incumbent cartels. The authors find that high social status entrants are significantly less likely (40 percent) to be preyed upon than...

Status issues permeate social and organizational life. As sociologists and anthropologists have long noted, whenever social actors gather, a status hierarchy among these actors emerges, and through that process, some actors are afforded higher esteem and prestige than others. The impact of these status differences cuts across all levels of analysis, from the individual actor’s position within a group to an organization’s network and status position in an industry or a market. In each case, the a...

This paper examines coworker networks in the American, Chinese, German, and Spanish divisions of a global retail bank. Because the bank has standardized structure and policies across countries, it is possible to examine how norms rooted in national culture impact on various features of informal ties. We propose that cultures vary in the models on which coworker interaction norms are based, with market, family, law, and friendship relations serving as alternative templates. In elucidating these t...

The assumption that ‘local search’ constrains the direction of corporate R&D is central in evolutionary perspectives on technological change and competition. In this paper, we propose a network-analytic approach for identifying the evolution of firms' technological positions. The approach (1) permits graphical and quantitative assessments of the extent to which firms' search behavior is locally bounded, and (2) enables firms to be positioned and grouped according to the similarities in their inn...
