Conversations Between Anthropologists and Economists

One of the recent productive approaches within the rhetorical tradition has been to view the economy and culture as consisting of conversations (Cosgel 1992, 1994, 1997; Cosgel and Klamer 1990; Cosgel and Minkler 2004; Gudeman and Rivera 1990; McCloskey and Klamer 1995; Strecker 1988). Adopting such an approach, this chapter will take not the firms, households, or tribes as the principal objective of analysis in both disciplines, but instead will focus on the conversations between these units. I view conversation as a purposeful activity, aimed at solving a problem. Dividing conversations into two groups based on the type of problems they aim to solve, I examine how economists and anthropologists differ systematically in their preferences and capabilities in studying these conversations and what consequences this difference has had for their own conversations across disciplines.
