    I am trying to write a short paper on an emerging social institutions. I know for a fact that 2/3 of the class have chosen mass media and virtual institutions. Those are the only two I can think of as well. I hate to do what everyone else is going though. Can anyone thing of another, or should I just choose one of those for my paper?

    "The Rise of the New Economy Movement
    Activists, theorists, organizations and ordinary citizens are rebuilding the American political-economic system from the ground up" ...
    "Thousands of real world projects -- from solar-powered businesses to worker-owned cooperatives and state-owned banks -- are underway across the country. Many are self-consciously understood as attempts to develop working prototypes in state and local “laboratories of democracy” that may be applied at regional and national scale when the right political moment occurs."

      Where did you get those quotes from? Anyway, I went with environmentalism as a social institution. It seems like social institutions are broad, such as family, religion and politics. It kind of seems the environmentalism is gaining characteristics of a social institution, so we will see what the teacher thinks. smile
