i am looking for an individual that is highly educated in sociology (ideally, economic sociology / sociology of markets). I am doing my masters and i am writing an essay right now within this subject and since i never done classes before in sociology, i would like to have an expert in the field to read it and see if there are any loopholes or fundamental errors in my essay, as well as suggest any possible ways of enhancing my arguments. Any additional help
the essay is 5000 words.For syntax errors/getting the point across would also be beneficial.
Theme is based on the literature that covers economic sociology and economic sociology of law.+4 Other Responses
In my work they are implementing a scheme to decide whether to renew contracts of the employees at the end of each year. In what we do it is easy to measure productivity as a number of items produced each year. Typical productivity in a year is, say, 3 items. However, some years an employee can have an exceptional productivity, such as 12 items in one year. In order to get these higher productivities the employees have to make some additional effort and this is usually rewarded with some extra money.
What the bosses want to do now is to ask the employees to sign an agreement that to renew their contract they will have to either maintain or increase their average productivity over the last 3 years. If they fail to do so their contract will not be renewed. Intuitively i think that this scheme will promote lower productivities.
Is there some publication of a computer simulation or mathematical model of something similar to the rules the bosses are considering implementing? My feeling is that this works like game rules (work rules) that the players (the workers) will try to beat in order to win the game (get your contract renewed at the end of the year). My guess is that there may be some game theory simulations that may give a proper answer to the problem, showing that the players will implement a strategy of low productivity to win the game. This is the kind of argument i can give to the bosses because they are scientists.
I don't have any expertise in economics and would not be able to find this kind of study myself. Does it exist? Is somebody able to point me to something like that?+9 Other Responses
