Abstract: Seen in a less optimistic key, the presence of the Social Economy through its specific forms of manifestation, seems to interpret in Romania the role of a concept currently located in the neighborhood of a primordially that does not know their prospects yet. There are few who, putting under an academic loupe its itinerary after 1990, describe it as a residue which resulted against a conceptual navigation without an adapting compass to the new work paradigms, ineffective in terms of its basic characteristics, a hybrid grafted with all sorts of imperfections specific to the economic and social transition period, still far from its potential. As a matter of fact this kind of interpretation should not look dissonant as long as the milestone for the relevant Romanian legislation is 2015. In this context, although the efforts to measure the inequalities are not negligible, the interests that the Romanian sociology should confer on the effects of the inequalities have on institutions and people of Romania are very low. After all, the economic, political and social dimensions of inequality conceal exploratory penumbra with important consequences for the society, especially for the institutional space. Given this perspective can the sociological research change the paradigmatic line focusing on the public policy as well?
