Sticky Struggles: A talk on social stratification based on networks

Sticky struggles sum up a new approach to social stratification based on networks.  Networks are taken as probabilities of renewal of interaction, not bonds that are present/absent.  Accumulated co-learning with specific others motivates renewal of ties and discourages rupture.  Stratification is circumscribed by network evolution which can be approximated by a first order markov process. This entails the emergence of a macro-structure,  a principle dimension of stratification. Re-analysis of occupational mobility data provides ample empirical support.
