In social network analysis SNA , entrepreneurs are often closely associated with brokers, because both are agents presumed to benefit from bridging structural holes; for example, gaining advantage through occupying a strategic position in relational space. Our aim here is twofold.
First, to conceptually and operationally differentiate policy brokers from policy entrepreneurs premised on assumptions in the policy-process literature; and second, via SNA, to use the output of core algorithms in a cross-sectional analysis of political brokerage and political entrepreneurship. We attempt to simplify the use of graph algebra in answering questions relevant to policy analysis by placing each algorithm within its theoretical context. In the methodology employed, we first identify actors and graph their relations of influence within a specific policy event; then we select the most central actors; and compare their rank in a series of statistics that capture different aspects of their network advantage.
Most of all, we acknowledge the patience and perseverance of our spouses, Susan Klein and Sharon McGuire, who were supportive in so many ways.

Political Science Quarterly, 2 2 , — It is not certain that a typical city government agency official will pursue collaboration; but when one does, the variation of actors across cities is desirable, from the standpoint of explanation.

Government policies and firms' entrepreneurial orientation: Strategic choice and institutional perspectives.
The relationship between government policies and firms' entrepreneurial orientation has been a controversial topic in entrepreneurship research. This paper examines how economic policies promulgated by the central government can attempt to shape the entrepreneurial orientation of privately owned firms in China. Instead of adopting the environmental deterministic view, this paper builds on strategic choice theory together with institutional theory to propose that the entrepreneurs' perception of new policies and the surrounding institutional environment interact to shape firms' behaviors, such as their entrepreneurial activities.
