Once the value of all marketable assets is determined, then all debts, such as home mortgages and credit card debts, are subtracted, which yields a person's net worth. Show and discuss Zoot Suit as an example of these. Note that happiness is never a a part of the equation. Since it hasn’t always been this way, how did we get to this point?

Omar Lizardo describes the Pax Wisconsana as: "a Midwestern flavored, Mertonian resolution of the theory/method wars in which [sociologists] all agreed on at least two working hypotheses: (1) grand theory ' is a waste of time; (2) [and] good theory has to be good to think with or goes in the trash bin."  Despite the aversion to grand theory in the later half of the 20th century, several new traditions have emerged that propose various syntheses: structuralism, post-structuralism, cultural sociology and systems theory.
