Hi Chris,

There's some very interesting interdisciplinary work in experimental
economics and psychological anthropology showing that people living in
groups characterized by greater market integration make higher (i.e., more
"fair") bids in Ultimatum and related games.  While much of the research
in this area is not explicitly networked, the work by John Patton, who
works with the Achuar and Quichua in Ecuador, does use some SNA (e.g., MDS
of a measure of coalitional support for all the men of the villages) --
and I hear more network analyses are on the way, both from John and others
involved in this project.

There is a volume edited by Joe Henrich, Rob Boyd, Sam Bowels, Herb
Gintis, Ernst Fehr, and Colin Camerer forthcoming at Oxford.  Joe has a
link to a working site for the book on his web page:

Hope you find this helpful.
