Economic Sociology

After this Atlanticblog post on journal editing (editors apparently suffer much abuse, even though they are often the kesy to a successful academic career) read this Vaguely Right post, and the paper it links to, on the attituides of those who have done PhDs in economics in the top US grad schools.

I'm not doing a PhD, nor do I actually want to be an academic economist. (Economic history, on the other hand, is a possibility.) None of what I've just read is encouraging me to think otherwise.
