The editors would first like to acknowledge one another’s e√ort in working
on the volume. We would also like to acknowledge the Program on the
Corporation as a Social Institution at the Social Science Research Council
(ssrc, with funds provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation) and the
Business Institutions Initiative, also of the ssrc, for funding the 2001 Work-
shop on the New Global Economy. In particular, we owe special thanks to
Craig Calhoun, president of the ssrc and professor of sociology at New York
University, and Doug Guthrie, program director of the Corporation as a
Social Institution at ssrc and professor of sociology and management at
nyu, for their enthusiastic support of the workshop. The conference was
graciously hosted by the Goizueta Business School at Emory University. In
addition, Ken Wissoker, our editor, and Courtney Berger, both of Duke
University Press, have each had an important hand in the volume’s develop-
ment, for which we are very grateful.
Siobhán O’Mahony, Paul Silverstein, Daniel Walkowitz, and two anony-
mous reviewers all o√ered insightful suggestions for the introduction. We are
grateful to all the authors for their contribution to the anthropology of the
New Economy. In addition, Melissa wishes to thank Sherry Ortner, Alice
Kessler-Harris, Wendy Mackenzie, Saskia Sassen, and Daniel Walkowitz for
their support. She also wishes to acknowledge the support of the Department
of Sociology and Anthropology at Georgetown University. Greg wishes to
