Abstract

In a recent article, Vincent Geloso (2015) argues that the study of social networks can illuminate Deirdre McCloskey’s view that modern economic growth was fostered by according entrepreneurial actions a sense of dignity. I extend Geloso’s framework to suggest that an ‘analytical egalitarian’ impulse to see other people as equals, and so worthy enough to forge economic connections with, also plays an important role in networking dynamics.

Keywords: analytical egalitarianism, Deirdre McCloskey, networks, social equality
