According to other theorists social structures are just what we could call unintended consequences of our individual actions. These unintended consequences when compounded, they result in the social phenomena that we see. We as individuals are only partially aware of what we are creating, since it is a collection of different individual actions. Many scholars have given an example of this through the study of economic phenomena.
According to many scholars the performance of market operations is a perfect example. Through supply and demand prices are set, quantities defined, and in addition markets are regulated. This is what Adam smith would have referred to as the invisible hand of politics if he were here with us.
The rational choice theory is a good analytical theory. However it can not be empirically tested. However, the improvement of models created using this theory can go along way in improving its applicability not only in social sciences but in other fields as well.
