Using the narrow concept of rationality in its research of firm, economics can only understand the economic life of the firm limitedly. In economic sociology, however, economic actor is the one who makes rational choices, but before he does that, factors in his rational consideration include not only economic variables, but also social variables, which means that rational choice is embedded in social structures.But this does not mean to discard the rational choice in economics,but to enhance the economic models which usually contains only few variables with the supplement of economic sociology. In this way, economic socio logy makes helpful amendment and supplement to economic research.
