It explores the influence of social networks on corporate behavior and governance using two different methodological designs. It provides data, measures, and analytical tools in order to move the economic sociology of comparative national systems into the forefront of any serious attempt to understand globalization and the evidence for convergence and nonconvergence of systems of corporate governance.
