About this product
- DescriptionSelf-sufficiency of the house is practiced in many parts of the world but igred in ecomic theory, just as socialist collectivization is assumed to have brought household self-sufficiency to an end. The ideals of self-sufficiency, however, continue to shape ecomic activity in many post-socialist areas. This volume's six comparative studies of post-socialist villages in Eastern Europe and Asia illuminate the enduring importance of the house ecomy, which is based t on the market but on the order of the house. These formations show that ecomies depend t only on the macro institutions of markets and states but also on the micro institutions of families, communities, and house ecomies, often in an uneasy relationship.
