This paper identifies economic roles in terms of personal and social contexts and defines economic socialization as a life-long, complex, interactional, and multi-disciplinary set of processes that involve the development of ideological beliefs about economic systems and individual roles within an economy. Socialization is influenced by instruction, purposeful shaping and modeling of beliefs and behaviors, and hidden or unconscious messages. The paper provides a literature review concerning socialization of youth in terms of: (1) the family and work; (2) society and work-related expectations; and (3) schools and work. Literature in terms of economic socialization and civic behavior is presented under the topics of: (1) civic action; (2) role-taking; (3) economic knowledge; and (4) problem solving. A 51-item bibliography is included. (JHP)
