Scandinavian rational choice sociology

Edling, Christofer LU and Stern, C. (2003) In Acta Sociologica 46. p.5-16
Abstract
The present status of rational choice sociology in Scandinavia is discussed in the form of a review, examining representative work and highlighting important scholars. Despite a reputation of having a strong Scandinavian rational choice tradition, rational choice sociology is practically non-existent in Denmark, Finland and Iceland. Rational choice sociology in Scandinavia is by-and-large concentrated in Oslo and Stockholm universities, where insightful discussions and relevant applications are found. but not in impressive numbers.
