Economic anthropology is a field that attempts to explain human economic behavior in its widest historic, geographic and cultural scope. It is an amalgamation of economics and anthropology. It is practiced by anthropologists and has a complex relationship with the discipline of economics, of which it is highly critical.

Polanyi drew on anthropological studies to argue that true market exchange was limited to a restricted number of western, industrial societies.
