With monopolistic competition firms are assumed to represent certain discernable product varieties. However, in most models they are not different from a qualitative point of view as regards their production function or special qualities of their variety. We still deal with representative agents. Agents are thus only studied with respect to their quantitative features. The methodological problem of modelling the micro-level without increasing complexity too much has also been called the "no bridge controversy" between micro- and macrolevel by Marengo and Willinger (1997: 336).

However, in a world where nearly everything seems to be mobile, taking given endowments as a starting-point of analysis may be misleading.

Social mobility is not to be understood in the sense of social hierarchies, but rather as the mobility and flexibility of ties and relationships.
