Extract from the back cover
Everyday life is at the center of personal and professional interactions that are one of the drivers of everyone’s behavior and success. M. Comola takes us through a variety of situations - job search, transmission of information, use of digital platforms, use of technology, insurance mechanisms, trade, or social discrimination - in which it is social ties that make the difference between success and failure. We can see then that these links, far from being limited to the private sphere, acquire an economic dimension that should be placed at the heart of the public debate.
Margherita Comola is an associate professor at the Université Paris-Saclay and an affiliate researcher at PSE - Paris School of Economics. Her research is at the crossroads of network economics, development economics and econometrics.
