Example: The Handbook of Economic Sociology: Second Edition 2nd Edition by Neil J. Smelser (Editor), Richard Swedberg (Editor). Princeton University Press, 2005
- From work in comparative political economy, demonstrating how the relationships between government and industry and among firms, banks, and unions vary from one country to another.
Ex: Comparative Political Economy: States, Markets and Global Capitalism 2014th Edition by Ben Clift. Red Globe Press, 2014.
- From political and economic geographers, who place regional economies in their spatial contexts and natural environments.
