ABSTRACT
The Economics of Conventions introduces some relevant theoretical considerations about the nature of socio-economic actions. These considerations could actually help sociology to better precise the role of moral aspects inside the economic phenomena. However, at the same time and in general, the Economics of Conventions does not seem to really overcome the overbalancing of mainstream economics approach on the individualistic and cognitive action aspects. In this sense, in the essay, we propose to "contaminate" conventions theory with some important arguments of sociology of power and linguistics.
