Conference on Valuation and Price Formation on Markets
The conference "Valuation and Price Formation on Markets" took place from June 14 to 17, 2009, at Villa Vigoni, a German-Italian conference center on Lake Como in Italy. Participants from Europe and the United States presented papers that dealt with various aspects of the conference topic from an economic sociology perspective. Economic sociology focuses on the social contexts of demand for products on markets and examines the social and cultural preconditions for attaching value to products, as well as the social construction of prices. Jens Beckert co-chaired the conference with Patrik Aspers of Stockholm University.
